Levetown & Jenkins, LLP is conducting an investigation into alleged breaches of fiduciary duties and violations of state law by Bucyrus International (“Bucyrus”) (NASDAQ: BUCY) and its Board of Directors in conjunction with the proposed buyout and acquisition of Bucyrus by Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT). Under the terms of a definitive merger agreement announced on November 15, 2010, Caterpillar is offering $92 for each share of Bucyrus common stock. The transaction is worth approximately $8.6 billion.
The firm’s investigation concerns whether the proposed acquisition properly values Bucyrus. Specifically, the investigation seeks to determine whether the Bucyrus Board of Directors engaged in a fair process to obtain adequate consideration for all of the company's shareholders, whether the transaction undervalues the company to the detriment of its shareholders and, if so, the extent to which the company is undervalued in the proposed transaction.
Levetown & Jenkins, LLP is a national law firm comprised of former federal and state prosecutors with extensive experience in the investigation and prosecution of shareholder fraud. The firm specializes in the representation of investors in shareholder and securities fraud class actions.
