WILMINGTON, Del., May 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of holders of The KeyW Holding Corporation ("KeyW") (NASDAQ:KEYW) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of KeyW by Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. ("Jacobs") announced on April 22, 2019 (the "Complaint").  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against KeyW, its Board of Directors (the "Board"), and Jacobs, is captioned Wheby v. The KeyW Holding Corporation, Case No. 1:19-cv-01459 (D. Md.).

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff's counsel, Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at info@rl-legal.com, or at http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/

On April 21, 2019, KeyW entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Jacobs.  Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of KeyW will receive $11.25 per share in cash (the "Proposed Transaction").

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a solicitation statement (the "Solicitation Statement") filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Complaint alleges that the Solicitation Statement omits material information with respect to, among other things, KeyW's financial projections and the analyses performed by KeyW's financial advisor.  The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of KeyW common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 22, 2019.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., with offices in Delaware, New York, and California, has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of investors and achieved substantial corporate governance reforms in numerous cases nationwide, including federal securities fraud actions, shareholder class actions, and shareholder derivative actions.
