On March 20, 2013, Erickson announced that it had agreed to acquire Evergreen for $250 million. However, prior to the acquisition Evergreen was in financial debt and may have been unable to repay a second lien it owed to ZM Funds. The acquisition of Evergreen allowed ZM Funds, which is the owner of approximately 60% of Erickson, to exchange approximately $120 million in distressed debt of Evergreen for millions of Erickson shares.
The investigation seeks to determine if Erickson's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties by agreeing to the transaction and if conflicts of interest played a role in the transaction which aided Erickson's majority shareholder. According to Erickson's public disclosures, Erickson's shareholders were not given the opportunity to vote on the Evergreen acquisition.If you own shares of Erickson common stock and wish to discuss the investigation or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
