NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Valassis Communications, Inc. ("Valassis" or the "Company") (NYSE: VCI) (ISIN: US9188661048) (CUSIP: 918866104) concerning the proposed acquisition of Valassis by Harland Clarke Holdings Corp.
The investigation concerns whether the Valassis directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Valassis shareholders will receive $34.04 per share in cash for each share of Valassis common stock. However, the Price to EBITDA and Revenue multiples are below the averages of comparable transactions.
Valassis shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Ofer Ganot at email@example.com or 212-661-1100, ext. 315.
