Buyout of eResearchTechnology - Shareholder Investigation by Tripp Levy PLLC on Behalf of eResearch Shareholders

Apr 10, 2012, 08:23 ET from Tripp Levy PLLC

NEW YORK, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating the Board of Directors of  eResearchTechnology ("eResearch" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: ERT) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law.  On April 10, 2012, ERT announced that it has entered into a merger agreement to be acquired by the private equity firm Genstar Capital for only $8 per share.

The investigation concerns, among other things, whether the consideration to be paid to eResearch shareholders is unfair, inadequate, and substantially below the fair or inherent value of eResearch.  Indeed, analysts project the stock of eResearch is worth at least $11 per share.
