Lincare Holdings Investor Alert: The Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale of Lincare Holdings, Inc. to Linde AG
Published on Monday, 02 July 2012 14:35 Written by TradersHuddle StaffDALLAS-( Business Wire )-
Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Lincare Holdings, Inc. (“Lincare” or “LNCR”) (NasdaqGS: LNCR) to Linde AG for shareholders. Under the proposed transaction, Lincare shareholders will only receive $41.50 in cash for each share of Lincare stock owned.
Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Linde AG will acquire all outstanding shares of Lincare in a cash transaction valued at approximately $4.6 billion. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter.
The investigation centers on whether Lincare shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Lincare stock, and whether Lincare’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. “Due to the lack of a significant premium to the shareholders and other factors, we believe that the transaction may undervalue LNCR stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders,” said shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe.
The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC is a full service business litigation and shareholder rights advocacy firm with more than 20 years of experience in complex litigation and transactional matters.
Powers Taylor, LLP is a boutique litigation law firm that handles a variety of complex business litigation matters, including claims of investor and stockholder fraud, shareholder oppression, shareholder derivative suits, and security class actions.
