An investigation on behalf of investors of GigPeak Inc (NYSEMKT:GIG) in connection with the proposed takeover was announced and NYSEMKT:GIG stockholders should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2017 -- An investigation on behalf of investors in shares of GigPeak Inc was announced concerning whether the acquisition of GigPeak Inc., formerly GigOptix, Inc, by Integrated Device Technology, Inc. for $3.08 per share is unfair to NYSEMKT:GIG stockholders.
Investors who purchased shares of GigPeak Inc (NYSEMKT:GIG) and currently hold any of those NYSEMKT:GIG shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at email@example.com or call 858-779-1554.
The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of GigPeak Inc breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSEMKT:GIG investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On February 13, 2017, Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDTI) and GigPeak Inc (NYSEMKT: GIG) announced that they have signed an agreement for Integrated Device Technology, Inc to acquire GigPeak, Inc., for total cash consideration of $3.08 per share, or approximately $250 million in cash.
However, given that at least one analyst has set the high target price for NYSEMKT: GIG shares at $3.50 per share and given that NYSEMKT: GIG shares traded in 2015 as high as $3.20 per share, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSEMKT:GIG stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the GigPeak Board of Directors undertook an adequate sales process, adequately shopped the company before entering into the transaction, maximized shareholder value by negotiating the best price, and acted in the shareholders' best interests in connection with the proposed sale.
On February 22, 2017, NYSEMKT:GIG shares closed at $3.06 per share.
Those who are current investors in GigPeak Inc shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
