The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:BEAV stockholders by agreeing to sell B/E Aerospace Inc too cheaply via an unfair process to Rockwell Collins
On October 23, 2016, Rockwell Collins and B/E Aerospace Inc (NASDAQ:BEAV) announced that they have entered into an agreement under which Rockwell Collins will acquire B/E Aerospace for approximately $6.4 billion in cash and stock, plus the assumption of $1.9 billion in net debt. Under the terms of the agreement, each B/E Aerospace Inc (NASDAQ:BEAV) shareowner will receive total consideration of $62.00 per share, comprised of $34.10 per share in cash and $27.90 in shares of Rockwell Collins common stock, subject to a 7.5% collar.
However, the plaintiff claims that the proposed consideration NASDAQ:BEAV shareholders will receive is grossly inadequate and undervalues B/E Aerospace Inc.

In addition, the plaintiff alleges that the process is also unfair to NASDAQ:BEAV stockholders.
