BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
(Reuters) — Grocery distributing company United Natural Foods Inc. filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Bank of America Merrill Lynch claiming the investment banks put their financial interests ahead of the company's when they advised it on a multibillion acquisition last year.
United Natural Foods announced plans to acquire distributor Supervalu Inc. in July 2018 in a deal valued at $2.9 billion, according to a joint statement on United's website.
United claims in the lawsuit, which was filed in New York state court, that Goldman Sachs committed breach of contract and fraud, and that the firm improperly extracted around $200 million for the advisory and financing services it gave United.
Goldman Sachs spokeswoman Nicole Sharp wrote in an emailed statement that the bank believes the claims have no merit, and the bank plans to "vigorously defend ourselves against these accusations."
Bank of America spokesman Bill Halldin declined to comment.
(Reuters) — A federal judge on Tuesday said Goldman Sachs Group Inc. shareholders may again pursue class-action claims that the bank concealed conflicts of interest when creating risky subprime securities before the 2008 financial crisis.
