SAN DIEGO, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Ferro Corporation (NYSE: FOE) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Prince International Corporation ("Prince").
On May 11, 2021, Ferro announced that it had entered into a definitive merger agreement with Prince. Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Prince will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Ferro common stock for $22 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the Ferro board failed to satisfy its 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 Ferro shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson Fistel is investigating whether the proposed deal represents adequate consideration, especially given analysts' projections for future revenue growth.
