Under the terms of the transaction, WhiteWave shareholders will receive only $56.25 in cash for each share of WhiteWave stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of WhiteWave breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Danone is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company as it is below the premium paid to shareholders in comparable transactions. In addition, an analyst has set a price target for WhiteWave stock at $60.00 per share.
