Is the Proposed Acquisition Fair for OM Group Shareholders?
Robbins Arroyo LLP is investigating the process that OM Group's board of directors undertook in agreeing to sell the company and whether the board sought to obtain the maximum value for shareholders.
The $34.00 merger consideration is significantly below a $49.00 target price set by an APB Financial Group analyst in March 2015. Financial analysts at BB&T Capital Markets and Northcoast Research have also appraised OM Group stock above the merger consideration, with target prices of $37.00 and $35.00, respectively. Moreover, the merger consideration's 17.9% premium, based on OM Group's closing price on May 1, 2015, is well below the average one month premium of 27% for comparable transactions within the past five years.
OM Group 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. OM Group shareholders interested in information about their rights and potential remedies can contact attorney Darnell R. Donahue at (800) 350-6003, [email protected], or via the shareholder information form on the firm's website.
