LawFuel.com — Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of ArthroCare Corporation, Inc. (“ArthroCare” or the “Company”) ARTC +0.53% relating to the acquisition by Smith & Nephew plc (“Smith & Nephew”).
Under the terms of the transaction, ArthroCare shareholders will receive only $48.25 in cash for each share of ArthroCare stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of ArthroCare for not acting in the Company’s shareholders’ best interests in connection with the sale process. The transaction may undervalue the Company as ArthroCare stock traded above the sale price at $49.84 after the transaction was announced on February 4, 2014 and an analyst has set a $60.00 per share price target on ArthroCare stock. In addition, the premium being paid to ArthroCare shareholders is substantially below the premium that has been paid for comparable transaction in the last three years.
