KnowBe4 shareholders, represented by another law firm, have filed a complaint against KnowBe4 for federal securities violations. The complaint is filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Case No. 1:22-cv-09727.
According to a lawsuit filed on November 15, 2022, Defendants have filed a proxy statement (the “Power of Attorney”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the merger.
The power of attorney omits important information about the merger, which makes the power of attorney false and misleading. Plaintiffs therefore argue that the merger should be held until the defendants disclose more information to shareholders.
