NEW YORK, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Diamond Resorts International, Inc. ("DRII" or the "Company") in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by affiliates of Apollo Global Management (the "Affiliates"). On June 29, 2016, the Company announced it had reached a definitive agreement for the Affiliates to acquire all outstanding shares of DRII in a transaction valued at approximately $2.2 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, DRII shareholders will receive $30.25 in cash for each DRII share they own.
WeissLaw is investigating whether DRII's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $35.00 per share, or approximately $5.00 above the office price.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether DRII's Board acted in the best interests of DRII's public shareholders to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. If you own DRII 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.
