The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain Derma Sciences directors breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:DSCI investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On January 10, 2017, Derma Sciences Inc announced that it has signed an agreement whereby Derma Sciences will be acquired by Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation(Nasdaq: IART) for $7.00 per share of common stock in cash, or a total of approximately $204 million, and $32.00 per share for its outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and $48.00 per share for its Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, reflecting the stated value of such preferred stock in each case.
