NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Jefferies Group, Inc. ("Jefferies" or the "Company") (NYSE: JEF) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Leucadia National Corporation ("Leucadia") in a transaction valued at approximately $3.6 billion.
On November 12, 2012, it was announced that Jefferies and Leucadia entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Leucadia will acquire Jefferies. Under the terms of the transaction, Jefferies shareholders will receive 0.81 of a Leucadia share for each of their shares, with a value of approximately $17.66 per share. At least one analyst estimated the value of Jefferies shares at $19.00 per share.
Our investigation concerns whether the Jefferies board of directors is fulfilling its fiduciary duties, undertaking a fair process maximizing the value of the Company, disclosing all material benefits and costs, and obtaining full and fair consideration for Company shareholders.
