Insurance companies for Broadcom have agreed to pay $118 million to settle allegations of stock options backdating, in the second-largest such deal in a derivative action to date, according to plaintiffs counsel. The proposed deal involves several current and former officers and directors of Broadcom, including former general counsel David Dull. The defendants have denied wrongdoing under the proposed settlement, which, if approved, would stay shareholder claims in a related class action against Broadcom.
