Unless you validly excluded yourself from the Settlement Class by August 16, 2018 deadline, you are a Settlement Class Member and will be giving up certain rights that you had since the Court approved the Settlement. You and all Settlement Class Members will release (agreeing never to sue or be part of any other proceeding) all Settlement Class Claims against the Defendants and all Released Defendant Persons.
“Settlement Class Claims” means all claims, rights, liabilities, and causes of action of every nature and description, including Unknown Claims, whether contingent or absolute, mature or unmature, discoverable or undiscoverable, liquidated or unliquidated, accrued or unaccrued, including those that are concealed or hidden, regardless of legal or equitable theory, that Plaintiffs or any other member(s) of the Settlement Class asserted or could have asserted in any forum (i) that arise out of, are based upon, or are related in any way directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, to the allegations, transactions, facts, matters, occurrences, representations, or omissions referred to in the Amended Complaint and that relate to the purchase, sale, acquisition, or retention of Yahoo securities during the Settlement Class Period; or (ii) that are related to the administration of the Settlement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, “Settlement Class Claims” does not include any claims asserted on behalf of the Company in the Derivative Actions.
““Released Defendant Persons” means, collectively, each and all of (i) the Defendants, the members of each Individual Defendant’s immediate family, any entity in which any Defendant or member of any Individual Defendant’s immediate family has, or had during the Class Period, a controlling interest (directly or indirectly), any estate or trust of which any Individual Defendant is a settlor or which is for the benefit of any Individual Defendant and/or members of his or her family; and (ii) for each and every Person listed in part (i), their respective past, present, and future heirs, executors, administrators, predecessors, successors, assigns, employees, agents, affiliates, analysts, assignees, attorneys, auditors, co-insurers, commercial bank lenders, consultants, controlling shareholders, directors, divisions, domestic partners, financial advisors, general or limited partners, general or limited partnerships, insurers, investment advisors, investment bankers, investment banks, joint ventures and joint venturers, managers, managing directors, marital communities, members, officers, parents, personal or legal representatives, principals, reinsurers, selling shareholders, shareholders, spouses, subsidiaries (foreign or domestic), trustees, underwriters, and other retained professionals, in their respective capacities as such.
Unless you validly excluded yourself from the Settlement Class by the stated deadline, all of the Court’s orders will apply to you and legally bind you. If you sign the claim form, you must accept your share in the Net Settlement Fund as sole compensation for any losses you have suffered in the acquisition and sale of Yahoo securities during the Settlement Class Period.
