SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of CLARCOR Inc. (NYSE: CLC) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Parker Hannifin Corporation. CLARCOR provides filtration products, filtration systems and services worldwide.
On December 1, 2016, CLARCOR announced it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Parker Hannifin. Under the terms of the agreement, Parker Hannifin will acquire all of the outstanding shares of CLARCOR common stock for $83.00 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the CLARCOR 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 CLARCOR shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson & Weaver is investigating whether the proposed deal price represents adequate consideration.
