NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities law firm, notifies investors of The Pep Boys – Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: PBY) of potential claims of breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law against the board of directors of Pep Boys in connection with the sale of the Company to The Gores Group.  It was announced that Pep Boys has entered into a definitive merger agreement under which it will be acquired by The Gores Group.  Under the terms of the merger agreement, The Gores Group will acquire all the outstanding common shares of Pep Boys for $15.00 per share in cash.

The investigation concerns whether the Pep Boys Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the company before entering into this transaction and whether Gores Group is underpaying for Pep Boys shares, thus unlawfully harming stockholders.  Indeed, analysts have projected that the true going forward inherent value of the company is worth at least $17 per share.
