The Children’s Investment Fund and 3G Capital Partners LP are there in connection with their alleged purchases and sales of CSX securities. CSX is party to the suit in name only, which was brought for the benefit of CSX.
If approved by the court, CSX will receive $10 million from TCI and $1 million from 3G and the defendants will be released from claims of violations of Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act. The settlement provides that counsel for the plaintiff will seek approval by the court for attorney’s fees and costs of up to $550,000, which will be paid from the proceeds of the settlement payable to CSX.
