NEW YORK, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The fairness of the proposed acquisition of API Technologies Corp. ("ATNY" or the "Company") by its affiliate, J. F. Lehman & Company ( "J. F. Lehman"), is the subject of an examination by WeissLaw LLP for possible breaches fiduciary duties and other violations of law. On February 29, 2016, the Company announced it had reached a definitive agreement for J. F. Lehman to acquire all outstanding shares of ATNY. Under the terms of the agreement, ATNY shareholders will receive $2.00 in cash for each ATNY shares they own.
WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether ATNY's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement with J. F. Lehman. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $3.75, or $1.75 above the per share offer price. Further, the Company recently announced positive financial results. It reported revenues of $68.0 million in the third quarter of 2015 as compared to $56.9 million reported in the same quarter of the previous year, representing an increase of $11.1 million year-over-year or approximately 20%.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether ATNY's Board acted in the best interests of ATNY's public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement with J. F. Lehman.
