Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Buckeye will receive $37.50 per share in cash for each share of Buckeye they own.

The investigation concerns whether Buckeye's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Buckeye's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Georgia-Pacific.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for Buckeye stock at $40.00.
