LONDON, August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
As previously announced, on June 18, 2013, a shareholder derivative action was filed by Leon Cooperman's Omega Overseas Partners, Ltd. ("Omega") in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, against the directors of Tetragon Financial Group Limited and Tetragon Financial Group Master Fund Limited (together, "TFG"), TFG's investment manager, the principals of TFG's investment manager and other affiliated entities (the "Action"). The Action made a series of allegations with respect to the October 2012 acquisition by TFG of Polygon Management L.P.
On August 7, 2014, in an opinion by Judge Richard J. Sullivan, the Court dismissed the Action in its entirety finding that Omega had "failed to state a federal claim". In so doing, the Court expressly rejected Omega's attempt to accomplish a "backdoor" route to a claim barred by prior Supreme Court precedent. The Court likewise refused to exercise its discretion to take cognizance of related claims asserted by Omega under Guernsey law.
TFG and its Board of Directors believe that Mr. Cooperman has been repeatedly untruthful in his dealings with the company and that the Action was ultimately brought by him in an attempt to gain undue influence over TFG and its activities. In an earlier order in this Action, the Court itself stated that "Cooperman may have been dishonest in his communications with Tetragon and that he may be prone to sophistry while under oath".
TFG and its Board of Directors are pleased that the Action has been dismissed and remain focused on creating long term value for all shareholders.
