NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. ("ALC" or the "Company") (NYSE: ALC) (ISIN: US04544X3008) (CUSIP: 04544X300) concerning the proposed acquisition of Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. by TPG, a leading global private investment firm, in a transaction valued at approximately $278 million in Cash.
The investigation concerns whether the ALC directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, ALC shareholders will be entitled to receive $12.00 per share in cash for each share of ALC Class A common stock and holders of ALC's Class B common stock will receive $12.90 per share in cash.
