WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether Extended Stay America's board acted in the best interest of Extended Stay America's public shareholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction, whether the $19.50 merger consideration represents full and fair value for Extended Stay America shares, and whether all information regarding the process undertaken by the board and the valuation of the transaction will be fully and fairly disclosed to Extended Stay America's public shareholders. Notably, at least one analyst set a price target of $21.00 for Extended Stay America, $1.50 higher than the proposed merger consideration.
