Management Buyout Of MEMSIC - Law Firm Seeks Higher Price For Shareholder
NEW YORK, April 23, 2013
NEW YORK, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national
securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating
on behalf of shareholders the acquisition of MEMSIC Inc. (NASDAQ: MEMS). Dr.
Yang Zhao who is the Chairman of the Board and CEO of MEMS and who owns 19.5%
of MEMS common stock is acquiring the remaining shares of MEMS that he does
not already own for only $4.225 per share.
The investigation concerns whether Dr. Zhao and the board of directors of
MEMSIC breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders. Dr. Zhao has an
inherent conflict of interest and he is seeking to acquire the company for
himself at the lowest price possible but he and the other board members have a
duty to obtain the highest price possible. The offer of $4.225 is barely above
the company's book value and does not take into effect the $62 million or
$2.50 per share of cash on the company's books.
As the Chairman and CEO of the company, Dr. Zhao has inside information
regarding the true value of the company and his and other management's stake
makes it difficult for shareholders to get a fair voting process.
