The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:TLN stockholders by agreeing to sell Talen Energy Corp. too cheaply via an unfair process to Riverstone Holdings LLC

On June 3, 2016, Talen Energy Corp (NYSE:TLN) announced that it has entered into a merger agreement with affiliates of private investment firm Riverstone Holdings LLC. Under terms of the merger agreement, all outstanding shares of Talen Energy Corp (NYSE:TLN)common stock not currently owned by Riverstone affiliated entities will be acquired for $14.00 per share in cash.

In addition, the plaintiff alleges that the process is also unfair to Talen Energy Corp. stockholders. Indeed, Riverstone and its affiliates have already agreed to vote their 35 percent stake in favor of the proposed transaction.
