Under the terms of the transaction, Brocade shareholders will receive only $12.75 in cash for each share of Brocade stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Brocade breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Broadcom is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in no real gain for many long-term Brocade shareholders. For example, Brocade stock traded at $12.80 per share on June 23, 2015 and an analyst had set a $14.00 per share price target for Brocade stock. In addition, the price being paid for Brocade appears low given that the purchase should allow Broadcom the means of owning both ends of the fibre channel connection.
