BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 19, 2008 (LAWFUEL) — The Shuman Law Firm today announced that it is investigating the proposed acquisition of TurboChef Corporation (“TurboChef”)(Nasdaq:OVEN).
On August 12, 2008, TurboChef announced that it has entered into a
definitive merger agreement with The Middleby Corporation and Chef
Acquisition Corp. Under the terms of the agreement, TurboChef
shareholders would receive $3.67 per share in cash and 0.0486 Middleby
common shares per TurboChef share. The proposed acquisition is expected
to close in the fourth quarter of 2008 and is subject to customary

Middleby a termination fee of $7 million if the merger agreement is
terminated in favor of a superior proposal.
