NEW YORK, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Belo Corporation ("Belo" or the "Company") (NYSE: BLC) (ISIN: US0805551050) (CUSIP: 080555105) concerning the proposed acquisition of Belo by Gannett Co., Inc. in a transaction valued at approximately $1.5 billion, plus the assumption of $715 million in existing debt for an enterprise value of approximately $2.2 billion.
The investigation concerns whether the Belo directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Belo shareholders will be entitled to receive $13.75 per share in cash for each share of Belo common stock. However, the price to EBITDA and Revenue multiples are below the average of comparable transactions. In addition, synergies may not be fully reflected in purchase price.
Belo shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at email@example.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
The firm is also investigating actions on behalf of shareholders for the following companies: Hilltop Community Bancorp, Inc., Dole Food Company, Inc., Centerline Holding Company, and Cooper Tire & Rubber Company.
