Berman DeValerio Investigates Forest Oil Corporation in Connection with Sale
of the Company to Sabine Oil & Gas LLC
BOSTON -- May 8, 2014
The law firm of Berman DeValerio is investigating Forest Oil Corporation’s
(“Forest” or the “Company”) (NYSE:FST) board of directors related to the
proposed sale of Forest to Sabine Oil & Gas LLC (“Sabine”). Sabine is a
limited liability company with no public market for its shares. Under the
terms of the transaction, in exchange for each share of Forest, shareholders
will receive .1 shares of a new company which is expected to trade on the New
York Stock Exchange.
If this transaction is consummated, First Reserve Corp., a private equity firm
which owns 99% of Sabine, will own as much as 73.5% of the newly formed
company. In addition, there is no public market for Sabine shares, which makes
it more difficult for Forest shareholders to assess the value of the
consideration they will receive for their shares. The Company has revealed,
however, that two Forest board members have negotiated positions for
themselves on Sabine’s board.
Berman DeValerio (www.bermandevalerio.com) is investigating whether Forest’s
directors adequately carried out their fiduciary duties to thoroughly consider
alternatives to the proposed acquisition and whether they conducted an
adequate and fair sales process in order to obtain maximum value for the
Company’s shareholders before approving the transaction.
If you currently hold shares of Forest and would like more information
regarding this matter, or if you wish to share information about the matter,

or (617) 542-8300.
