NEW YORK, April 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating the acquisition of OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI) ("OmniVision" or the "Company") on behalf of its shareholders. OmniVision announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by a consortium composed of Hua Capital Management Co., Ltd., CITIC Capital Holdings Limited, and GoldStone Investment Co., Ltd. Under the terms of the agreement, OmniVision stockholders will receive $29.75 per share in cash or a total of approximately $1.9 billion.
Our investigation has determined that the offer price of only $29.75 per share unfairly under-values the true going forward inherent value of OmniVision and that shareholders are not receiving the maximum value for their shares. Indeed, among other things, the Company has over $513 million of cash on its balance sheet or $8.83 per share in cash. Further, the book value per share of the Company is $19.13 per share. In addition, analysts have opined that the Company is worth at least $35 per share and the stock has traded as high as $29.95 within the past year. The investigation further seeks to determine whether the senior management of OmniVision are entering into this deal for their own self-interests to the detriment of the Company's shareholders. Indeed, OmniVision CEO Shaw Hong is expected to remain with OmniVision in the same capacity.
