Mayer Brown Article
28 March 2007 - A recent Delaware Court of Chancery opinion has identified some pitfalls to avoid in conducting a proper sale process.

March 14, 2007, C.A. No. 2563-VCS) enjoined the $115 million all-cash acquisition of Netsmart Technologies by two private equity firms until corrective disclosures are made regarding the conduct of the sale process and certain management projections are disclosed.
