This case involves two retail corporations that entered into a signed letter of intent whereby Company A would take over 15 locations of Company B. The purchase price would have been $10 million. Company B was leasing one location from a third party leasing agent and Company A had a location about 1 mile away. Company A began negotiating with the leasing agent to start a new lease at the same location where Company B was located and paid the agent a $300,000 consulting fee. The leasing agent informed Company B that in order for the deal with Company A to go through, they would need to execute a lease termination which they did. Company A executed a new lease at the same location and never pursued the deal with Company B. It is alleged that Company A misrepresented their intention for the purpose of ridding the area of competition.
