NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan & Morgan is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Heelys, Inc. ("Heelys") (HLYS) concerning the proposed acquisition of Heelys by Sequential Brands Group, Inc. ("Sequential").
If you are a current shareholder of Heelys and are interested in learning more about our Heelys (HLYS) merger investigation, please contact George Pressly, Esq. at 1 (800) 631-6234 or email George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On December 10, 2012, Heelys announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by Sequential in a transaction valued at approximately $63 million. Under the terms of the agreement, Heelys' shareholders will receive $2.25 in cash for each share of Heelys stock owned.
