(“SunTrust”) ( STI ) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of SunTrust by BB&T Corporation (“BB&T”) announced on February 7, 2019 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against SunTrust, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and BB&T, is captioned Parshall v. SunTrust Banks, Inc. , Case No. 1:19-cv-01277 (N.D. Ga.).

On February 7, 2019, SunTrust entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with BB&T.  Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of SunTrust will receive 1.295 shares of BB&T common stock for each share of SunTrust they own (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to, among other things, the analyses performed by SunTrust’s financial advisor.  The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of SunTrust common stock.
