BALA CYNWYD, Pa., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Skilled Healthcare Group, Inc. ("Skilled Healthcare" or the "Company") (NYSE –SKH-News) relating to the proposed merger with Genesis HealthCare ("Genesis").

Under the terms of the transaction, Skilled Healthcare shareholders will collectively own only 25.75% of the vote and value of the fully-diluted equity of the combined Company. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Skilled Healthcare for not acting in the Company's shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process.
The transaction may undervalue the Company as one analyst has estimated that the value of Skilled Healthcare shares following the merger could be as low as $7.00 per share. However, it is difficult to ascribe a value as there is no direct purchase price and Genesis has limited historical data. In addition, the investigation seeks to determine if conflicts of interest played a role in the transaction. Skilled Healthcare's CEO was the former CEO of Genesis and it has been reported that he has a change of control provision in his employment contract valued at $3,848,000 in the event of a change in control.
