GSI Commerce : Litigation Exposes Secret Dealings in eBay Acquisition

On behalf of the Erie County Employees’ Retirement System, we alleged that GSI’s founder breached his fiduciary duties by negotiating a secret deal with eBay for him to buy several GSI subsidiaries at below market prices before selling the remainder of the company to eBay.

These side deals significantly reduced the acquisition price paid to GSI stockholders. Days before an injunction hearing, we negotiated an improvement in the deal price of $24 million.
