The article reports on the lawsuit filed by Haights Cross' (HC) Series B preferred stockholders against the company at the Delaware Court of Chancery in Delaware. Investors claim that the management has failed to pay more than $ 40 million in dividends and point out that the company is unwilling to reverse the trend toward insolvency or salvage value for investors to pursue a sale. On the other hand, company executives maintain the firm's financial structure precludes payment of dividends.
