NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. ("Plum Creek" or the "Company") (NYSE: PCL) (ISIN: US7292511083) (CUSIP: 729251108) concerning the proposed acquisition of Plum Creek by Weyerhaeuser Company ("Weyerhaeuser").

Plum Creek shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.

The investigation concerns whether the Plum Creek directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value.  Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Plum Creek shareholders will receive 1.60 shares of Weyerhaeuser for each share of Plum Creek held, valued at approximately $48.64 per share of Plum Creek common stock based upon Weyerhaeuser's closing stock price on November 6, 2015.  However, an analyst recently set a price target of $50.00 per share for Plum Creek.
