BALA CYNWYD, Pa., March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Newport Corp. ("Newport" or "the Company") (Nasdaq- NEWP-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to MKS Instruments, Inc. ("MKS").
For information about the investigation click here http://brodsky-smith.com/1046-newp-newport-corp.html, or call: 877-534-2590. There is no cost or obligation to you.
Under the terms of the transaction, Newport shareholders will receive only $23.00 in cash for each share of Newport stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Newport breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether MKS is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and appears to be an attempt by MKS to take advantage of Newport's recent depressed stock price.
