BOSTON, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a Boston-based law firm representing investors nationwide, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duties by the Board of Directors of Sauer-Danfoss Inc. ("Sauer-Danfoss" or the "Company") (NYSE: SHS) with regards to their recently announced tender offer by Danfoss A/S ("Danfoss").
Sauer-Danfoss announced on November 28, 2012 that it has received notice from Danfoss of its intention to launch a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Sauer-Danfoss at a price of $49.00 per share in cash. Danfoss and its subsidiaries currently own approximately 75.6% of the outstanding shares of Sauer-Danfoss. Block & Leviton's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether Sauer-Danfoss' Directors breach their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value in the proposed transaction and the process by which the Sauer-Danfoss' Directors consider the proposal.
Sauer-Danfoss' stock, on the first day of trading after the announcement, shot above the offer price by nearly 5%. Sauer-Danfoss' 52 week high is over 10% more than the price of the proposed tender offer and it traded above the proposed price as recently as March 28, 2012.
If you are a Sauer-Danfoss shareholder and have questions about your legal rights, or if you have information relevant to this investigation, please contact attorney Steven P. Harte, Esq. at (617) 398-5600 or email him at Steven@blockesq.com.
