In a pair of opinions issued Jan. 5, Delaware Court of Chancery Vice Chancellor Sam Glasscock III denied summary judgment to respondents in appraisal proceedings brought by stockholder Merion Capital LP. In each case, Merion purchased its shares after the record date, and thus did not vote on the mergers. Both Ancestry.com Inc. and BMC Software Inc. argued that Merion lacked standing because it could not show that its shares were not voted in favor of the mergers by previous owners. Glasscock disagreed, holding that Delaware's appraisal statute does not require an appraisal petitioner to trace the voting history of its shares.
