    Background Note: Nuix, a provider of investigative software, saw a 40% increase in shares after the Federal Court of Australia’s ruling in its favor regarding a five-year dispute with former CEO Eddie Sheehy. Sheehy had claimed stock split rights during the company’s IPO in 2020, but Justice John Halley dismissed the claim as already dealt with in a 2019 Supreme Court decision. No “sale of business” occurred before 2010; thus, no options could be exercised. The ruling relieved investor concerns of a potential $183 million bill affecting the company’s finances. Nuix shares have risen 96% since the start of the year, reaching $1.28 on Tuesday’s trade.
