NEW YORK, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) has commenced an investigation into the fairness of the sale of Talen Energy Corporation ("Talen") (NYSE: TLN) to Riverstone Holdings LLC ("Riverstone").
Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement with Riverstone, announced on June 3, 2016, Talen stockholders are offered $14.00 per share in cash, in a transaction worth approximately $5.2 billion.
Our investigation concerns whether the $14.00 per share in cash consideration offered to Talen's shareholders undervalues Talen, especially given that the price target for Talen shares, according to at least one Wall Street analyst is $15.00 per share, and that Riverstone is taking Talen private only a year after it started trading, and for 25% less than its initial trading price. The 52 week high for Talen stock is $20.25. It has been noted in the financial press that the merger's potential profit "is very small, assuming the deal closes as advertised."
We are also investigating whether Talen's board of directors has properly discharged its fiduciary duties to shareholders, including adequately pursuing alternatives to the acquisition and obtaining the best price possible for Talen shareholders.
If you own Talen shares and wish to discuss this matter with us, or have any questions concerning your rights and interests with regard to this matter, please contact:
