WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of Noble Energy, Inc. ("NBL" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NBL) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Chevron Corporation ("Chevron") (NYSE: CVX). Under the terms of the all-stock transaction, NBL shareholders will receive 0.1191 of a Chevron share for each share of NBL common stock that they own, representing implied per-share merger consideration of $10.15 based on CVX's July 20, 2020 closing price of $85.27. At current valuations, NBL stockholders will receive a mere 5.5% premium upon the closing of the deal.

WeissLaw is investigating whether NBL's board acted to maximize shareholder value in agreeing to the proposed transaction, whether the board was fully informed as to the valuation of the proposed acquisition,, and whether all information regarding the valuation of the deal will be fully and fairly disclosed to NBL shareholders. At least one analyst set a target price of $25.00 per NBL share, or approximately $15 above the near zero-premium $10.15 per-share merger consideration.
