Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Cornerstone shareholders would receive between $6.40 and $6.70 for each share of Cornerstone stock they own. The investigation concerns, among other things, whether the proposed consideration to be paid to Cornerstone shareholders is unfair, inadequate, and substantially below the fair or inherent value of Cornerstone stock.
