SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Stillwater Mining Company (NYSE: SWC) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Sibanye Gold Limited. Stillwater Mining engages in the development, extraction, processing, smelting and refining of platinum group metals (PGMs).
On December 9, 2016, Stillwater Mining announced it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Sibanye. Under the terms of the agreement, Sibanye will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Stillwater Mining common stock for $18.00 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the Stillwater Mining board failed to satisfy their duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for Stillwater Mining shares of common stock. Given the Company's outlook for future revenue and earnings growth, nationally recognized Johnson & Weaver is investigating whether the proposed deal price represents adequate consideration; moreover, one Wall Street analyst has a $21.00 price target.
If you are a shareholder of Stillwater Mining and believe the proposed buyout price is too low and you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact lead analyst Jim Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 619-814-4471.
