Tripp Levy PLLC announces an investigation into the proposed acquisition of Stanley Inc. (NYSE: SXE). On April 7, 2010, CGI Group Inc. (NYSE: GIB) and Stanley announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement for CGI to acquire Stanley through a cash tender offer at $37.50 per share.
However, Stanley may not have adequately shopped itself around before entering into this transaction and, pursuant to this proposed transaction, CGI Group may be underpaying for Stanley, thus unlawfully harming Stanley shareholders. In addition, certain Stanley officers and directors have agreed to vote in favor of the offer, and the merger agreement also contains a break-up fee payable to CGI under certain circumstances and a provision under which Stanley has agreed not to solicit any competing offers.
The investigation concerns, among other things, whether the consideration to be paid to Stanley shareholders is grossly unfair, inadequate, and substantially below the fair or inherent value of Stanley. The investigation further concerns whether the directors of Stanley may have breached their fiduciary duties by not acting in Stanley shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process of Stanley.
