WILMINGTON, Del., May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado on behalf of holders of DigitalGlobe, Inc. (“DigitalGlobe”) (NYSE:DGI) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of DigitalGlobe by MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd (“MacDonald”) announced on February 24, 2017 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against DigitalGlobe, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and MacDonald, is captioned Assad v. DigitalGlobe, Inc., Case No. 1:17-cv-01097 (D. Colo.).

On February 24, 2017, DigitalGlobe entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with MacDonald.  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, shareholders of DigitalGlobe will receive $17.50 in cash and 0.3132 of a MacDonald share for each share of DigitalGlobe stock they own (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2017.  The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement, which recommends that DigitalGlobe stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits material information necessary to enable shareholders to make an informed decision as to how to vote on the Proposed Transaction, including material information with respect to DigitalGlobe’s financial projections, the analyses performed by DigitalGlobe’s financial advisor, and potential conflicts of interest.  The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of DigitalGlobe common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 24, 2017.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
