("Vitacost" or the "Company") (NASDAQ GS: VITC) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by The Kroger Co.

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Vitacost would receive $8.00 in cash for each share of Vitacost they own.
The investigation concerns whether Vitacost's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Vitacost's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Kroger. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Vitacost stock at $10.00 per share.
