NEW YORK, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of American Capital Ltd. ("American Capital" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ACAS) (ISIN: US0250341038) (CUSIP: 025034103) concerning the proposed acquisition of American Capital by Ares Capital Corporation ("Ares Capital").
American Capital shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at email@example.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether the American Capital directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, American Capital shareholders will be entitled to receive $6.41 in cash per share, plus 0.483 Ares Capital shares for each share of American Capital common stock.
However, an analyst recently set a price target for American Capital at $18.00 per share. Moreover, Total Revenue, Total Assets, and Book Value are below the average of comparable transactions, according to a Bloomberg analysis.
