(NYSE: TRH) over potential breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations in connection with the proposed merger between of Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. and Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG in a transaction valued at approximately $3.2 billion.
On Sunday, June 12, 2011, Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: TRH) and Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG (NYSE: AWH) announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement.
