Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of
fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of
Directors of Tim Hortons Inc. ("Tim Hortons" or the "Company") (NYSE:
THI) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Burger King
Worldwide Inc. ("Burger King").
On August 26, 2014, Tim Hortons and Burger King announced the signing of
a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Burger King will acquire
Tim Hortons in a transaction valued at approximately $11 billion.

$88.50 Canadian per share, or 3.0879 shares of the new company for each
share of Tim Hortons they own.

the Company's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties by
failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into the
