BOSTON, Aug. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Please read this notice carefully and in its entirety. Your rights may be affected by the proceedings described in this notice. A proposed settlement has been reached in this action, as set forth in a Stipulation of Settlement (“Stipulation”). The action is a derivative action, which was brought on behalf of State Street Corporation (“State Street”), and the proposed settlement does not provide for monetary recovery. Accordingly, there is no claim form. The Stipulation of Settlement does not require State Street to make any payment to State Street shareholders.
A hearing to determine whether the proposed settlement of the claims that were asserted by the plaintiffs, derivatively on behalf of nominal defendant State Street, against certain directors and officers of State Street should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable and adequate, will be held on October 13, 2021 at 2:00pm before the Honorable Brian A. Davis, both via Zoom (Meeting ID 161 7623 4752) and live at the Suffolk County Superior Court, Courtroom 1309, 3 Pemberton Square, Boston, MA 02108. At the hearing, the Court will also consider whether to enter a judgment dismissing all claims in the litigation with prejudice, forever discharging and settling certain released claims, whether to approve Plaintiffs’ request for their counsel’s fees and expenses, and any other matters that may properly be before the Court in connection with the proposed settlement.
If you are a Shareholder under the terms of the proposed settlement, you may have certain rights in connection with the proposed settlement. This notice is a summary only and does not describe all of the details of the Stipulation. Nothing in this notice can vary or supersede the terms of the Stipulation.
