This chapter examines what matters in the settlement of shareholder litigation. It discusses the opinion of study participants on the nature of the settlement process and the factors that help bring the parties together to begin to negotiate a settlement. The analysis reveals that the factors that influence settlement include the amount of investor loss alleged by plaintiffs, the general trends in shareholder settlement and insurance limits, and the structure of coverage. The chapter also considers the influence of litigation dynamics on the timing and amount of settlements.
