NEW YORK, May 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of VWR Corp. ("VWR" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: VWR) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Avantor ("Avantor") in a transaction valued at approximately $6.4 billion.
Pursuant to the terms of the transaction, Avantor will acquire VWR for $33.25 in cash per share of VWR common stock.
