Dealer Management Systems Settlement

All persons and entities located in the United States engaged in the business of the retail sale of automobiles who purchased Dealer Management Systems from CDK and/or Reynolds, or any predecessor, successor, subsidiary, joint venture, or affiliate, during the period from January 1, 2015 through October 23, 2018.

Defendants were sued by Dealership Class Plaintiffs who claim that Reynolds and CDK conspired, in violation of federal antitrust laws and certain state antitrust and consumer protection laws, to restrain and/or eliminate competition by charging Dealership Class Plaintiffs more than they should have in the markets for Dealer Management System (“DMS”) software services and for Data Integration Services (“DIS”) programs and services for extracting, formatting, integrating, and/or organizing data from DMSs.

The Defendants deny the claims in the lawsuit and have asserted legal defenses. Reynolds has agreed to settle this case to avoid the cost and uncertainty associated with continuing the lawsuit. The lawsuit will continue against CDK.
