claims against the board of directors of Edgen Group Inc. (“Edgen” or the

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Edgen will receive
$12.00 per share in cash for each share of Edgen they own.

The investigation concerns whether Edgen’s board of directors failed to
adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Edgen’s
shareholders before entering into an agreement with Sumitomo. According to
Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for Edgen stock at
$15.00 per share.

If you own the common stock of Edgen and purchased your shares before October
1, 2013, if you have information or would like to learn more about these
claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions
