Is the Proposed Acquisition Best for Cytec and Its Shareholders?

Robbins Arroyo LLP's investigation focuses on whether the board of directors at Cytec is undertaking a fair process to obtain maximum value and adequately compensate its shareholders.

The $75.25 merger consideration represents a premium of only 23.9% based on Cytec's closing price on June 29, 2015.  This premium is significantly below the average one-month premium of nearly 32% for comparable transactions within the past five years.  

Cytec shareholders have the option to file a class action lawsuit to ensure the board of directors obtains the best possible price for shareholders and the disclosure of material information.  Cytec shareholders interested in information about their rights and potential remedies can contact attorney Darnell R. Donahue at (800) 350-6003,, or via the shareholder information form on the firm's website.
