Other Events
Satyam Computer Services Limited (Mahindra Satyam) “(the Company”), has entered into a Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement (the “Settlement”) with the Lead Plaintiffs in the putative class action filed against the Company in the United States District Court, Southern District Court of New York (“Court”). The Company has agreed to pay to the Class members as consideration, U.S. $125 million, subject to the approval of the Reserve Bank of India and the determination of the Authority for Advance Ruling, and 25% of any net recovery that the Company may in the future obtain against any of the PwC-Related Entities. The Settlement amount includes taxes, compliance costs, attorney’s fees and expenses.
The Settlement is subject to the approval of the Court and may be terminated prior to Court approval pursuant to the grounds for termination set forth in the Settlement. If the Settlement is approved by the Court, in exchange for the settlement consideration, the Lead Plaintiffs and the members of the Class who do not opt-out of the Class, would release, among other things, their claims against the Company. The obligations incurred pursuant to the Settlement are in full and final disposition of the Action with respect to the Released Parties and any and all Released Claims.
This Settlement does not cover the Aberdeen Action in the same Court, wherein a trustee of two trusts, who are assignees of the claims of twenty investors, sought recovery from the Company. However the investors who have assigned the claim to the two trusts are entitled to participate in the proceeds of the Settlement.
Further, the Settlement is exclusively for and on behalf of the Company and does not affect the other defendants to the class action litigation.
