BALA CYNWYD, Pa., Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("NPS" or "the Company") (Nasdaq-NPSP-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Shire plc.("Shire").

Click here to learn more about the investigation, or call 877-534-2590. There is no cost or obligation to you.

Under the terms of the transaction, NPS shareholders will receive $46.00 in cash for each share of NPS stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of   NPS breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Shire is underpaying for NPS shares. The transaction may undervalue NPS  given the market for the Company's GATTEX/REVESTIVE drug for injection that is approved to treat adults with short bowel syndrome.  In addition, prior to the announcement, an analyst had set a $50.00 per share price target on NPS stock.

If you own shares of NPS common stock and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of  the investigation, or have any questions, you may e-mail  or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
