Item 8.01 Other Events
Cybex International, Inc. (Cybex or the Company) reports that a single shareholder seeking class action status has commenced a suit, Guziec v. Cybex International, Inc. et al, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, naming the Company and its directors as defendants. The action alleges, among other things, that the defendants breached their fiduciary obligations to the Companys shareholders by entering into the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger (Merger Agreement) pursuant to which all of the Companys outstanding common stock held by its public shareholders would be converted into $2.55 per share cash in a going private merger transaction. Plaintiff seeks an unspecified amount of damages and to enjoin the Company from proceeding with the proposed transaction.
Consummation of the merger transaction is subject to various conditions, including approval of the Merger Agreement at a Special Shareholders Meeting anticipated to be held in the first quarter of 2013.
The Company believes the action is without merit and will vigorously pursue its defense.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
