Hidary Group Claims Everlast Worldwide Violated Merger Agreement

| About: Everlast Worldwide, (EVST)

Hidary Group, who had an agreement to purchase Everlast Worldwide (EVST) for $30 per share, says that Everlast violated the terms of their merger agreement when it accepted an offer of $33 per share from Sports Direct International.

According to a SEC filing, Hidary believes that Everlast was not entitled to terminate the merger agreement because the company had not received a superior proposal, and that Everlast was required to give Hidary written notice that it had received a new offer from a rival suitor.

Hidary also was allowed to see any documents related to Brand Holdings' bid, according to the SEC filing and had 4 days to respond to any other offer.

Hidary says that it may pursue legal action to remedy the breach of contract.
