WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of Otelco, Inc. ("OTEL" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OTEL) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by affiliates of Oak Hill Capital ("Oak Hill"). Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, the Company's shareholders will receive a mere $11.75 in cash for each share of OTEL common stock they own, an amount below OTEL's pre-announcement closing price.

WeissLaw is investigating whether OTEL's board was truly independent and acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement, and whether all information regarding the valuation of the deal will be fully and fairly disclosed to OTEL shareholders. Notably, a group of related entities which collectively own 49.6% of OTEL's total outstanding shares has already agreed to vote in favor of the transaction, and the no-premium merger consideration is $0.51 less than OTEL's July 24, 2020 closing price of $12.26.

We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.
