On August 26, 2010, Berkshire Hathaway announced that it plans to buy
the 19.9% stake it doesn't already own by paying an amount equal to
Wesco's book value per share. Under the terms of the agreement, Wesco
stockholders can choose to receive $353 in cash or Berkshire Class B
shares, or a combination of the two for each share of Wesco stock held.
Berkshire Hathaway currently owns 80.1% of Wesco. The complaint, filed
on August 31, 2010, alleges that the consideration offered in the
agreement to acquire Wesco is inadequate and unfair.
