Very rarely will a chief executive publicly accuse his company’s biggest external shareholder of acting in a way that “defies common sense.” Nor will a CEO typically allege that the shareholder plans to railroad the company and other investors into a merger that none of them want–but then it’s not every day that a company has to take its biggest shareholder to court either. The company in question is Multi-Fineline Electronix (or M-Flex for short)–a fast-growing maker of circuit boards in Anaheim, Calif.–and the shareholder, hedge fund Stark Investments. On Oct. 11, M-Flex sued Stark over the hedge fund’s plans to vote in favor of a proposed $500 million deal for M-Flex to buy its Singapore-based competitor, MFS Technology.
