The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:OUTR stockholders by agreeing to sell Outerwall Inc. too cheaply via an unfair process to Apollo Global Management, LLC

On July 25, 2016, Outerwall Inc (NASDAQ:OUTR) announced that it has entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with affiliates of certain funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC pursuant to which the Apollo Funds will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Outerwall Inc (NASDAQ:OUTR) common stock for $52.00 per share in cash.

In addition, the plaintiff alleges that the process is also unfair to Outerwall Inc. stockholder.
