ROCKWOOD HOLDINGS, INC. SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Buyout

WILMINGTON, Del. --(Business Wire)--

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:

  • Do you own shares of Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ROC)?

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Rockwood Holdings, Inc. ("Rockwood" or the "Company") (NYSE: ROC) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by Albemarle Corporation ("Albemarl") (NYSE: ALB), in a transaction valued at approximately $6.2 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, public 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 closing stock price on July 14, 2014, Rockwood shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $85.53 per share.

The investigation concerns whether Rockwood's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Rockwood's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Albemarle. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Rockwood stock at $93.00 per share.
