("Asset Acceptance" or the "Company") (NASDAQ GS: AACC) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by Encore Capital Group, Inc.

Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of Asset Acceptance will receive $6.50 per share in cash for each share of Asset Acceptance they own. 

The investigation concerns whether Asset Acceptance's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Asset Acceptance's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Encore.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for Asset Acceptance stock at $8.00 per share.
