BALA CYNWYD, Pa., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Dole Food Company, Inc. ("Dole" or the "Company") (NYSE: DOLE) relating to the unsolicited acquisition offer by the Company's Chief Executive Officer.

Under the terms of the offer, Dole shareholders will receive only $12.00 in cash for each share of Dole stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Dole for not acting in the Company's shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process. The transaction may undervalue the Company as Dole stock traded at $12.58 per share as recently as June 13, 2013 and traded at $14.35 per share on September 20, 2012. The offer appears to be an attempt to take advantage of a depressed stock price as Dole had been previously taken private in 2003 only to be later re-listed in an initial public offering in 2009.
If you own shares of Dole common stock and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of the proposed transaction, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
