Under the terms of the transaction, ReachLocal shareholders will receive only $4.60 in cash for each share of ReachLocal stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of ReachLocal breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Gannett is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in a substantial loss for many long-term ReachLocal shareholders. For example, ReachLocal stock has traded over $7.00 per share. In addition, with 16,000 customers in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific, the transaction will expand Gannett's digital revenue by $320 million.
