NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Notice is hereby given that Monteverde & Associates PC has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court the Northern District of Florida, Case No. 1:21-cv-00209, on behalf of public common shareholders of SharpSpring, Inc. (“SharpSpring” or the “Company”) who held SharpSpring securities as of the record date on July 28, 2021 and were harmed by SharpSpring and its board of directors (the “Board”), alleging violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) in connection with the merger of SharpSpring with Constant Contact, Inc. (“Constant Contact”) (the “Transaction”).
Under the terms of the Transaction, Constant Contact acquired SharpSpring, with former SharpSpring stockholders receiving $17.10 per share as part of the all-cash sale (the “Merger Consideration”). The complaint alleges that the Merger Consideration was inadequate and that the Proxy provided stockholders with materially incomplete and misleading information with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act. The merger was completed on September 1, 2021.
