The article reports on the move by vice chancellor Leo Strine Jr. for Delaware Court of Chancery to increase the emphasis on auction procedure through a ruling, making many investors in the private equity on guard in the U.S. The ruling was based on the acquisition of Nestmart Technologies by Insight Venture Partners and Bessemer Venture Partners, in which the transaction resulted to a poorly motivated and tactically flawed sale process.
