SAN DIEGO, Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of CST Brands, Inc. (NYSE: CST) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. ("Couche-Tard"). CST operates as an independent retailer of motor fuel and convenience merchandise items in the United States and eastern Canada.
On August 22, 2016, CST announced it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Couche-Tard. Under the terms of the agreement, CST stockholders will receive $48.53 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the CST 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 CST shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson & Weaver is investigating whether the proposed deal price represents adequate consideration; especially given that the price target for one Wall Street analyst is $55.00
If you are a shareholder of CST and believe the proposed buyout price is too low or you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact lead analyst Jim Baker ([email protected]) at 619-814-4471.
