May 28, 2015, 15:09 ET from Wolf Popper LLP

NEW YORK, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolf Popper LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors in GrafTech International Ltd. ("GrafTech") (NYSE: GTI), concerning the proposed acquisition of GrafTech by a private equity firm, Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (NYSE: BAM).  GrafTech shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition can contact Carl Stine at (212) 759-4600 or cstine@wolfpopper.com.

The investigation concerns whether GrafTech's directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately maximize shareholder value.  Under the terms of the proposed transaction, GrafTech's shareholders will receive $5.05 per share in cash for each GrafTech share they own. The proposed transaction has a preliminary equity value of approximately $693 million. However, the offer price is significantly below GrafTech's 52 week high of $10.77 per share and below the median analyst price target of $5.53 per share.

Wolf Popper LLP has extensive experience representing investors in mergers and acquisition lawsuits and has successfully ensured that investors receive the maximum compensation. Twelve Wolf Popper attorneys were named Rising Stars or Super Lawyers in the 2014 Super Lawyers New York City Metro Edition, including Wolf Popper partner Carl Stine, who was included in the Super Lawyers Top 100 List for the New York City Metro area. View Wolf Popper attorney biographies at www.wolfpopper.com.
