WILMINGTON, Del., Dec. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of holders of Inteliquent, Inc. (“Inteliquent”) (NASDAQ:IQNT) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of Inteliquent by GTCR LLC, Onvoy, LLC, and Onvoy Igloo Merger Sub, Inc. (collectively, the “Acquiring Parties”) announced on November 3, 2016 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Inteliquent, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and the Acquiring Parties, is captioned Lon v. Inteliquent, Inc., Case No. 1:16-cv-11244 (N.D. Ill.). 

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., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803, by telephone at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail at info@rl-legal.com; or at: http://rigrodskylong.com/investigations/inteliquent-inc-iqnt-buyout/.

On November 2, 2016, Inteliquent entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with the Acquiring Parties.  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Inteliquent shareholders will receive $23.00 per share in cash (the “Proposed Transaction”).

The Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, on December 2, 2016, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a Preliminary Proxy Statement (the “Proxy Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Proxy Statement, which recommends that Inteliquent stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits material information necessary to enable shareholders to make an informed decision as to how to vote on the Proposed Transaction, including material information with respect to the opinions and analyses of Inteliquent’s financial advisor and potential conflicts of interest.

Plaintiff seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Inteliquent common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than February 27, 2017.  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.
