NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Metropolitan Health Networks, Inc. ("Metropolitan" or the "Company") (NYSE: MDF) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Humana Inc. ("Humana") in a transaction valued at approximately $850 million

On November 5, 2012, it was announced that under the terms of the transaction, Metropolitan shareholders will receive $11.25 per share in cash.  The price represents only a 3.7 percent premium over Metropolitan's closing price on November 2, 2012.  In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Metropolitan stock at $13.00 per share.

Our investigation concerns whether the Metropolitan board of directors is fulfilling its fiduciary duties, maximizing the value of the Company, disclosing all material benefits and costs, and obtaining full and fair consideration for Company shareholders.
