In a recent decision, the District Court in Utrecht ordered the Dutch company Super de Boer to compensate shareholders because it had failed to make price-sensitive information public in a timely manner. According to the District Court, the prejudiced shareholders sold their shares on the basis of incomplete information during the period that Super de Boer and Jumbo were negotiating about a takeover. When, during that period, the volume of trading in Super de Boer shares increased significantly, the information should have been published.
