NEW YORK, June 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of AV Homes Inc. ("AVHI" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: AVHI) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by fellow home builder Taylor Morrison Home Corp. ("TMHC") (NYSE: TMHC). Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, AVHI shareholders can elect to receive either: (1) $12.64 in cash and 0.4034 shares of TMHC Class A common stock; or (2) $21.50 in cash, or (3) 0.9793 shares of TMHC Class A common stock for each AVHI share they own.
WeissLaw is investigating whether AVHI's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, the acquisition is a financially compelling transaction which, according to TMHC's CEO, "supports [its] strategic growth priority by bringing [TMHC] deeper into five  current markets, adding Jacksonville to [its] portfolio, and further expanding [TMHC's] offerings in the affordable first-time buyer and active adult consumer segments."
Moreover, in its latest financial report, the Company announced double-digit growth in net new order value. AVHI's President and CEO further underscored the Company's strong first quarter performance, stating in part that the Company's "gross margins for the quarter  have improved sequentially over the past several quarters and  remain in a strong liquidity position."
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether AVHI's Board acted in the best interests of AVHI's public shareholders to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement.
