Welcome to the Constant Contact Securities Litigation Website

This website has been established to provide general information related to the proposed settlement of the case captioned McGee v. Constant Contact, Inc., et al., No. 1:15-cv-13114-MLW (the "Litigation"), pending before the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts (the "Court"). The capitalized terms used on this website, and not otherwise defined, shall have the same meanings ascribed to them in the Stipulation of Settlement (the "Stipulation") dated May 18, 2018, which can be found and downloaded by clicking on the Case Documents tab above. Your rights may be affected by the Settlement if you purchased or otherwise acquired Constant Contact, Inc. ("Constant Contact") common stock during the period from July 25, 2014, through and including July 23, 2015 (“Class Period”).

The law firm of Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP represents you and other Class Members. You will not be charged for these lawyers. They will be paid from the Settlement Fund to the extent the Court approves their application for fees and expenses. If you want to be represented by your own lawyer, you may hire one at your own expense.

WHAT IS THIS LAWSUIT ABOUT?

As more fully described in the Notice of Proposed Settlement of Class Action (the "Notice"), the initial complaint in this action was filed on August 7, 2015. On September 21, 2016, the Court appointed Lead Plaintiff and Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP as Lead Counsel.

On March 27, 2018, the parties engaged in a successful mediation session with Michelle Yoshida, Esq. of Phillips ADR Enterprises, P.C., a nationally recognized mediator. These efforts culminated with the parties agreeing to settle the Litigation for $13,000,000, subject to the negotiation of the terms of a Stipulation of Settlement and approval by the Court.

WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?

The Settlement, if approved, will result in the creation of a cash settlement fund of $13,000,000 (the “Settlement Amount”). The Settlement Amount, plus accrued interest (the “Settlement Fund”) and minus the costs of the Notice and all costs associated with the administration of the Settlement, as well as any attorneys’ fees and expenses that may be approved by the Court (the “Net Settlement Fund”), will be distributed to eligible Class Members pursuant to the Plan of Allocation that is described in the Notice.
