NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Cole Real Estate Investments, Inc. ("Cole" or the "Company") (NYSE-MKT: COLE) (ISIN: US19329V1052) (CUSIP: 19329V105) concerning the proposed acquisition of Cole by American Realty Capital Properties Inc.
The investigation concerns whether the Cole directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Cole shareholders will receive $13.82 per share in cash for each share of Cole common stock. However, the deal offer price of $13.82 per share is below the target price set by at least one analyst of $15.00 per share for Cole's common stock.
Cole 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.
