SAN DIEGO, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of CEB Inc. (NYSE: CEB) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Gartner, Inc. CEB operates as a practice insight and technology company in the United States, Europe and internationally.
On January 5, 2017 CEB announced it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Gartner. Under the terms of the agreement, CEB shareholders will receive $54.00 in cash and 0.2284 shares of Gartner common stock for each share of CEB common stock they own.
The investigation concerns whether the CEB 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 CEB shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson & Weaver is investigating whether the proposed deal price represents adequate consideration, especially given one Wall Street analyst has a $91.00 price target on the stock.
If you are a shareholder of CEB and believe the proposed buyout price is too low and you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact lead analyst Jim Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 619-814-4471.
