ViroPharma and Shire announced on November 11, 2013, that the companies have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Shire will acquire all the outstanding common stock of ViroPharma for approximately $4.2 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the ViroPharma Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Shire is underpaying for ViroPharma shares.
