Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Edgen will receive $12.00 per share in cash for each share of Edgen they own.
The investigation concerns whether Edgen's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Edgen's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Sumitomo. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for Edgen stock at $15.00 per share.
