In a COVID-triggered MAE dispute between Gilat Satellite Networks (the target company) and Comtech Telecommunications (the acquiring company), Brattle was engaged by Gilat to provide financial and economic analyses to address Comtech’s allegations that Gilat had experienced an MAE. Comtech had previously agreed in January 2020 to acquire Gilat for total consideration of $577.3 million. The litigation was settled in October 2020, following submission of expert reports and deposition testimony by a Brattle principal. As part of the settlement, Comtech agreed to pay Gilat $70 million.
