NEW YORK, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Cooper Tire & Rubber Company ("Cooper Tire" or the "Company") ( NYSE: CTB) (ISIN: US2168311072) (CUSIP: 216831107) concerning the proposed acquisition of Cooper Tire in a transaction valued at approximately $2.5 billion in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the Cooper Tire directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Cooper Tire shareholders will be entitled to receive $35.00 per share in cash for each share of Cooper Tire common stock. However, the price to EBITDA, Revenue, and Income multiples are below the average of comparable transactions, and may not reflect $80-$120 million in annual synergies.
Cooper Tire shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org 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., and Dole Food Company, Inc.
