HONG KONG and SEOUL, South Korea, June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Elliott, the hedge fund with US$26bn under management, today made the following statement:

Elliott continues to believe that the proposed takeover is clearly neither fair to nor in the best interests of Samsung C&T's shareholders, and that it is unlawful. Elliott has therefore taken the step today of commencing legal proceedings for an injunction against Samsung C&T and its directors in order to seek to prevent the proposed takeover from going ahead and thereby protect the interests of Samsung C&T's shareholders. (Docket # 2015KaHab80582)
