SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Announces The Investigation Of International Game Technology In Connection With The Proposed Sale Of The Company To GTECH S.p.A
STEVENSON, Md. --(Business Wire)--
The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional
Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of
fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of
Directors of International Game Technology (News - Alert) ("IGT" or the "Company")
(NYSE: IGT) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by GTECH
On July 16, 2014, IGT announced the signing of a definitive agreement
pursuant to which GTECH will acquire IGT in a merger valued at
approximately $6.4 billion.
Under the terms of the transaction, IGT and GTECH will combine under a
newly formed holding company organized in the United Kingdom ("NewCo").
IGT shareholders will receive an aggregate value of $18.25 per IGT share
in a combination of $13.9 in cash plus 0.1819 ordinary shares of NewCo
for each share of IGT common stock they own. According to Yahoo!
Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for IGT
stock at $19.00 per share.
The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether
the Company's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties by
failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into the
transaction, and whether GTECH is underpaying for IGT shares.
