National Instruments investors have until January 29, 2024 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

On January 17, 2023, before the market opened, Emerson Electric Co. (“Emerson”) announced that it had made an all-cash offer to purchase all National Instruments shares for $53 per share. The timeline of the previous communications regarding Emerson’s offer indicating that Emerson had made its initial offer of $48 per share on May 25, 2022, emphasizing that National Instruments had concealed Emerson’s all-cash, no financing contingency, no regulatory risk offer from the investing public.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that NATI had received a formal acquisition offer from Emerson to purchase all outstanding shares of NATI common stock at prices significantly above the then-current market prices of NATI common stock, and therefore significantly above the prices at which NATI was repurchasing NATI common stock from unsuspecting Class members. Accordingly, NATI had an obligation to disclose that it had received a formal acquisition offer from Emerson or abstain from purchasing NATI stock from unsuspecting investors.
