SAN DIEGO, August 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of SunEdison Semiconductor Limited (NASDAQ: SEMI) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to GlobalWafers Co., Ltd. SunEdison Semiconductor develops, manufactures and sells silicon wafers in the United States and internationally.
On August 17, 2016, SunEdison Semiconductor announced it had signed a definitive merger agreement with GlobalWafers. Under the terms of the agreement, SunEdison Semiconductor stockholders will receive $12.00 a share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the SunEdison Semiconductor board failed to satisfy their duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for the Company's shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson & Weaver is investigating whether the proposed deal price represents adequate consideration; especially given that the price target for one Wall Street analyst is $13.00.
If you are a shareholder of SunEdison Semiconductor and believe the proposed buyout price is too low or you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact lead analyst Jim Baker ([email protected]) at 619-814-4471.
