In Vintage Rodeo Parent, LLC v. Rent-A-Center, Inc., C.A. No. 2018-0928-SG (Del. Ch. Mar. 14, 2019), Vice Chancellor Glasscock of the Delaware Court of Chancery found that Rent-A-Center, Inc. properly terminated its merger agreement with Vintage Capital Management LLC after Vintage failed to submit a notice to extend the drop-dead date for its pending $1.37 billion buyout of Rent-A-Center. In doing so, the Court strictly interpreted the express language of the merger agreement and permitted Rent-A-Center to unilaterally terminate the merger by delivering a termination notice only hours after the extension deadline passed.
