As reported in Law360 [$$], on October 11, 2017 the Delaware Supreme Court heard argument appealing the Chancery Court’s ruling in the ISN Software appraisal case. We have previously posted on the trial court’s decision here, in which Vice Chancellor Glasscock awarded a premium to the merger price. The Supreme Court did not rule and did not indicate when it would do so. You can see the complete oral argument here (under the October 11, 2017, listing; ISN Software v. Ad-Venture Capital). Unlike the Dell and DFC Global arguments, the Supreme Court did not convene en banc – that is, with a full five-justice proceeding – and instead conducted argument by a three-justice panel, which did not include the Chief Justice.
We will continue to monitor the docket and post when the ruling is issued.
