We have been consulted by a number of hedge funds requesting information concerning the proposed merger between Cheil & Samsung C & T. We advised, notwithstanding the “law,” that Samsung will, likely, win the battle against Elliot.
Today, Elliott’s injunctions against the Board vote on the merger was dismissed by the Seoul Central District Court. No surprise here. The Court noted that the merger ratio is not “patently unfair.”
We will have more on this issue when more is known.
