Infogroup (NASDAQ:IUSA) announced today that Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware declined to issue a preliminary injunction which might have delayed the meeting of Infogroup’s shareholders scheduled for June 29, 2010 to vote on the proposed acquisition of the Company by affiliates of CCMP Capital Investors LLP.
The preliminary injunction was requested by the New Jersey Carpenters Pension Fund, a shareholder of the Company, on behalf of all the Company’s shareholders. The Pension Fund could still seek a discretionary interlocutory appeal of the Court of Chancery’s decision.
