WeissLaw is investigating whether CART's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the merger agreement. Notably, the deal is a strategic transaction from which CARO hopes to leverage CART's strong presence in the Carolinas to expand its footprint in the region. According to CARO's CEO, "[t]his transaction allows for [CARO] to deepen its market presence in North Carolina. [CART] represents the best opportunity for [CARO] to expand our footprint in these markets and the merger will allow us to execute on many of our publicly stated goals."
Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether the merger enhances CART shareholder value. Specifically, WeissLaw is concerned whether CART's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed merger, whether the proposed merger undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed merger is fully and fairly disclosed.
