The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Peregrine Semiconductor Corp breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:PSMI investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:PSMI stockholders by agreeing to sell Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. too cheaply via an unfair process to rata Electronics North America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

On August 22, 2014, Murata Electronics North America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., (TSE/OSE 6981) and Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSMI) announced that they have entered into an agreement under which Murata will acquire all outstanding shares of Peregrine not owned by Murata, for $12.50 per share in cash, or a total transaction value of$471 million ($465 million excluding Murata’s existing holding).

However, the plaintiff claims that the offer is unfair to NASDAQ: PSMI stockholders and undervalues Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation. Indeed, following the takeover news NASDAQ:PSMI shares reached $12.89 per share in the open market on August 22, 2014. In addition, Peregrine Semiconductor Corp went public in August 2012. Peregrine Semiconductor Corp (NASDAQ:PSMI) reported that its Total Revenue rose from $107.77 million for the 52 weeks period that ended on Dec. 31, 2011 to $203.91 million for the 52 weeks period that ended on Dec. 29, 2012, respectively $202.32 million for the 52 weeks period that ended on Dec. 28, 2013 and that its Net Loss of $9.68 million for the 52 weeks period that ended on Dec. 31, 2011 turned into a Net Income of $7.27 million for the 52 weeks period that ended on Dec. 29, 2012. Shares of Peregrine Semiconductor Corp (NASDAQ:PSMI) traded during 2012 as high as $18.705 per share. Furthermore, the plaintiff alleges that the process is also unfair to NASDAQ:PSMI stockholders.
