The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breaches their fiduciary duties owed to investors in shares of Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG). The plaintiff seeks to recover 25 million shares of Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) stock that were allegedly improperly awarded to certain Cheniere Energy’s employees, consultants and directors under the Cheniere Energy, Inc. 2011 Incentive Plan despite the fact that the stockholder vote to permit such awards did not receive the required majority vote. The plaintiff says that awarding of these restricted stock awards was an unauthorized act by the Board that exceeded the Company’s own authority under its own bylaws and is thus ultra vires.
