On December 21, 2009, a complaint was filed in the Santa Clara County Superior Court by three former stockholders of Reliant Technologies, Inc. (Reliant) against Reliant and certain former officers and directors of Reliant in connection with the acquisition of Reliant by Solta Medical, Inc. (the Company), which closed on December 23, 2008 (the Merger). The complaint purports to be brought on behalf of the former common stockholders of Reliant. As a result of the Merger, a successor entity to Reliant, Reliant Technologies, LLC, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Eric Stang and Leonard DeBenedictis are among the defendants named in the complaint. Messrs. Stang and DeBenedictis are members of the Companys Board of Directors, and Mr. DeBenedictis is the Companys Chief Technology Officer. The principal claim, among others, is that Reliant violated Section 2115 of the California Corporations Code by failing to obtain the vote from a majority of holders of Reliants common stock prior to the consummation of the Merger. The complaint also purports to challenge disclosures made by Reliant in connection with its entry into the Merger and that the defendants failed to maximize the value of Reliant for the benefits of Reliants common stockholders.
The Company believes that this suit is without merit, and the Company intends to vigorously defend it. The Company does not expect that the litigation will have a material adverse effect on the Companys financial results. The Company has provided notice of the suit to Reliants insurer.
This information shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
