"Apollo originally expressed an interest in purchasing CEC Entertainment for $55-56 per share," said shareholder rights lawyer Hamilton Lindley. "By permitting Apollo to purchase the company for $54 per share, the CEC board appears not to be fulfilling its duties to obtain the highest price reasonably available. The CEC Entertainment board also agreed to a poison pill that improperly locks up the transaction with Apollo. Our planned stockholder lawsuit seeks to remove these improper deal protections and fight for the highest price reasonably available."
