NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of CEC Entertainment, Inc. ("CEC" or the "Company") (NYSE: CEC) (ISIN: US1251371092) (CUSIP: 125137109) concerning the proposed acquisition of CEC by an Affiliate of Apollo Global Management, whereby Apollo will acquire the Company in a transaction valued at approximately $1.3 billion, including the assumption of the Company's outstanding debt.

The investigation concerns whether the CEC directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value.  Under the terms of the agreement, CEC shareholders will receive $54.00 per share in cash for each share of CEC common stock.  However, the Price to EBIT and EBITDA multiples are below the average of comparable transactions.

CEC shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
