...during the course of this week we have been engaged in negotiations in particular with the Delaware objectors, no longer objectors.
The settlement which resulted, and that resulted, obviously, from the participation of Delaware... is now substantially larger, greater than three times what we originally thought was an appropriate settlement.
Counsel for Bank of America added:
We commend all of the parties for how hard they worked in the past week. And, in particular, counsel for the Delaware objectors who, in our view, in many respects, are principally responsible for the increase in the cash component of the settlement.After four years of vigorous litigation seeking damages on behalf of Bank of America, Chimicles & Tikellis is pleased that the revised settlement delivers substantial value to Bank of America representing a more than three-fold increase over the original settlement, bringing the litigation to a successful conclusion for Bank of America and its stockholders.
