NEW YORK, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating the acquisition of Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT) ("Procera" or the "Company") on behalf of its shareholders. Procera announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by private funds managed by Francisco Partners Management, L.P., a private equity firm, in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $240 million. Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Francisco Partners will commence a tender offer to acquire all outstanding shares of Procera's common stock for $11.50 per share in cash.
Our investigation has determined that the offer price of only $11.50 per share unfairly under-values the true going forward inherent value of Procera and that shareholders are not receiving the maximum value for their shares. Indeed, among other things, the Company has over $102 million of cash on its balance sheet or $5.08 per share in cash, and no long term debt. The book value per share of the Company is $6.35 per share, and an analyst has projected that the price of the stock is worth at least $12 per share. The investigation further seeks to determine whether the senior management of Procera are entering into this deal for their own self-interests to the detriment of the Company's shareholders.
If you are a shareholder of Procera and would like additional information as to how the acquisition may affect your rights as a shareholder, and how you may be eligible to obtain a higher price for your shares, please call us at no cost at:
