More on the Hanover Settlement

Business Week Online has an analysis of the Hanover Compressor settlement and its possible impact on future securities class action settlements.

Quote of note: “Richard Bennett, a corporate-governance consultant in Portland, Me., agrees. ‘Hanover Compressor may not be a household name, but it’s completely unprecedented to have a publicly traded company acknowledge that board members ought to be accountable to their shareholders,’ he says. ‘I think you’re definitely going to see more [groundbreaking corporate-governance settlements] because shareholders are demanding it.'”
