Bull & Lifshitz, LLP announces an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty in connection with the proposed acquisition of Clarient, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLRT - News) ("Clarient" or the “Company”) by GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric Company ("GE"), in a cash transaction valued at approximately $580 million.
Under the terms of the definitive agreement, a subsidiary of GE has commenced a tender offer for all outstanding common and preferred shares of Clarient at $5.00 per common share and $20.00 per preferred share, in each case payable in cash. The transaction is structured as an all-cash tender offer by a subsidiary of GE, followed by a second step merger of the companies in which GE will acquire any Clarient shares not purchased in the tender offer. Stockholders holding approximately 47 percent of Clarient's current outstanding voting stock have agreed, among other things, to tender their shares in the proposed transaction. The tender offer is set to expire on December 6, 2010.
Bull & Lifshitz, LLP's investigation is focused on whether the proposed deal provides adequate value to the Company’s shareholders.
