SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims That the Merger May
Not Be in the Best Interest of Investors of Verenium Corporation - VRNM
NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2013
NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom
& Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Verenium
Corporation ("Verenium" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: VRNM) (ISIN: US92340P2092)
(CUSIP: 92340P209) concerning the proposed acquisition of Verenium by BASF
Corporation in a transaction valued at approximately $51 million..
The investigation concerns whether the Verenium directors are breaching their
fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize
shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Verenium shareholders
will receive $4.00 per share in cash for each share of Verenium common stock.
However, the Price to Revenue and Total Assets multiples are below the
averages of comparable transactions.
Verenium shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are
advised to contact Robert Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or
212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
The firm is also investigating actions on behalf of shareholders for the
following companies: Hilltop Community Bancorp, Inc., Dole Food Company,
Inc., and Cooper Tire & Rubber Company.
