Since this website is just a summary, you should review the Notice for additional details.
Court-appointed Lead Plaintiffs, The Fresno County Employees' Retirement Association and the Employees' Retirement System of the City of Baton Rouge and Parish of East Baton Rouge (collectively, “Lead Plaintiffs”), on behalf of themselves and the Settlement Class, have reached a settlement of the Action for $110,000,000.00, with $27,231,527.20 paid in cash and $82,768,472.80 paid in shares of comScore common stock (the " Settlement").

The Court also entered separate Orders approving the Plan of Allocation for the proceeds of the Settlement and awarding Plaintiffs’ Counsel attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of Litigation Expenses.
If you are a member of the Settlement Class, your rights will be affected whether you take any action or not and you may be eligible for a payment from the Settlement. The Settlement Class consists of:
All persons or entities who or which (i) purchased or otherwise acquired comScore, Inc. (“comScore”) common stock during the period from February 11, 2014 through November 23, 2016, inclusive; (ii) held the common stock of Rentrak Corporation (“Rentrak”) as of December 10, 2015 and were entitled to vote on the Merger between comScore and Rentrak consummated on January 29, 2016; or (iii) acquired shares of comScore common stock issued pursuant to the Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed with the SEC on October 30, 2015 and subsequently amended, and were damaged thereby, except for certain persons and entities who are excluded from the Settlement Class by definition (see paragraph 23 of the Notice) or who requested exclusion pursuant to the instructions set forth in the Notice.
Please read the Notice to fully understand your rights and options. Copies of the Notice and Claim Form can be found on the menu at the top of this page.
If you are a member of the Settlement Class, in order to be potentially eligible to receive a payment under the Settlement, you must have submitted a Claim Form postmarked no later than May 29, 2018. Payments to eligible claimants will be made only after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process will take some time to complete.
