Fiduciary duties are fundamental concepts in Delaware corporate law. Directors and officers owe duties of care and loyalty, and from these obligations flows a duty to disclose information to stockholders, as in In re Wayport Litigation, 76 A.3d 296, 314 (Del.

July 16, 2019), the Delaware Court of Chancery relied on these principles to support an order denying a motion to dismiss breach of fiduciary duty claims emanating from disclosure obligations when soliciting stockholder action or offering statements regarding the business or affairs of a corporation.
