Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRSH)
According to the Complaint, Papa Murphy’s is a franchisor and operator of the largest “Take ‘n’ Bake” pizza brand in the United States, selling hand-crafted, fresh pizzas for customers to bake at home.
This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on April 11, 2019, pursuant to which Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. will be acquired by affiliates of MTY Food Group Inc.
On April 25, 2019, Defendants filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges that the Solicitation Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Solicitation Statement false and misleading.
