SAN DIEGO, June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Albany Molecular Research, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRI) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to The Carlyle Group and GTCR. Albany Molecular is contract research and manufacturing company that provides integrated drug discovery, development, and manufacturing services primarily in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
On June 6, 2017, Albany announced it had signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by The Carlyle Group and GTCR. Under the terms of the agreement, The Carlyle Group and GTCR will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Albany common stock for $21.75 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether Albany's board failed to satisfy their duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for Albany's shares of common stock.
If you are a shareholder of Albany and believe the proposed buyout price is too low or you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact Jim Baker (email@example.com) at 619-814-4471. If emailing, please include a phone number.
