WeissLaw is investigating whether NRC Group's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the merger agreement. As an Oil Spill Removal Organization ("OSRO") the NRC Group generates a recurring, compliance-driven revenue stream, with upside from spill events and international expansion, particularly in Mexico and Canada. According to US Ecology, the deal will enhance shareholder value through improved financial profile and industry leading position.
Notably, NRC Group has reported increased operating revenue for the fourth quarter and full year 2018, as well as the first quarter of 2019. Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether the merger enhances NRCG shareholder value. Specifically, WeissLaw is concerned whether NRC Group'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.
WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties. We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.
