Under the terms of the transaction, Janus shareholders will receive only 4.7190 shares of Henderson for each share of Janus stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Janus breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Henderson is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in a loss for many long-term Janus shareholders. In addition, the investigation seeks to determine if conflicts of interest played a role in the transaction. It has been reported that the sole banking advisor to Janus may receive its largest fee ever or as much as $20 million if the transaction is completed,
