SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Announces The Investigation Of Rockwood Holdings Inc. In Connection With The Proposed Sale Of The Company
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 Rockwood Holdings, Inc. ("Rockwood" or the "Company")
(NYSE: ROC) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Albemarle
On July 15, 2014, Rockwood and Albemarle announced that they had entered
into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Albemarle will acquire all
outstanding shares of Rockwood in a cash and stock transaction valued at
approximately $6.2 billion.
Under the terms of the transaction, shareholders of Rockwood would
receive $50.65 in cash and 0.4803 shares of Albemarle for each share of
Rockwood they own. Based on Albemarle's uly 14, 2014 closing stock
price, Rockwood shareholders would have received consideration valued at
approximately $85.53 per share.
According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a
price target for Rockwood stock at $93.00 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 this
transaction, and whether Albemarle is underpaying for Rockwood shares.
