NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Cabela's Inc. ("CAB" or the "Company") in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Bass Pro Shops ("Bass"). On October 3, 2016, the Company announced that it had reached a definitive agreement for Bass to acquire all outstanding shares of CAB in a transaction valued at approximately $5.5 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company's shareholders will receive $65.50 in cash for each CAB share they own.
WeissLaw is investigating whether CAB's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, the Company recently announced positive financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016. It reported total revenues increased 11.2% to $929.9 million, and revenue from retail store sales increased 13.3% to $644.9 million.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether CAB's Board acted in the best interests of CAB's public shareholders to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. If you own CAB shares and would like more information about your rights or our investigation, or if you have information to share with us, please contact Joshua Rubin by telephone at (888) 593-4771 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
