Bridge Medical Stockholder Lawsuit

The Delaware Court of Chancery ruled that AmerisourceBergen must pay $21 million, plus prejudgment interest of $5.9 million, to the former stockholders of Bridge Medical Inc., a former subsidiary AmerisourceBergen acquired in 2003 and sold in 2005. The stockholders alleged they were entitled to payments that were conditioned upon Bridge achieving certain earnings levels in 2003 and 2004, and that AmerisourceBergen breached its obligations to assist the Bridge sales force and promote its bedside point-of-care patient safety product.
