NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom &
Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Ameristar Casinos,
Inc. ("Ameristar" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: ASCA)(ISIN: US03070Q1013) (CUSIP:
03070Q101) concerning the proposed acquisition of Ameristar Casinos, Inc. by
Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. in a transaction valued at approximately $2.8
billion in cash.

The investigation concerns whether the Ameristar directors are breaching their
fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize
shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Ameristar shareholders
will be entitled to receive $26.50 per share in cash for each share of
Ameristar common stock. However, an analyst recently set a target price of
$27.00 per share.

advised to contact Robert Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or
212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.

The firm is also investigating actions on behalf of shareholders for the
following companies: Arbitron Inc., Caribou Coffee Company, Inc., Net1 Ueps
Technologies, Inc., Epoch Investment Partners, Inc., Hi-Crush Partners LP,
Intermec, Inc., SandRidge Energy, Inc., Abiomed, Inc., Universal Technical
