Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of TGC Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: TGE) arising from its proposed acquisition by Dawson Geophysical Company (NASDAQ: DWSN).
Under the terms of the merger agreement, TGC shareholders will receive 0.188 shares of Dawson stock for each TGC share. Based on the closing share prices of the two companies on March 18, 2011, the transaction values each TGC share at $8.00. The transaction is expected to close by early third quarter of 2011, subject to, among other things, approval by 80% of the outstanding shares of TGC. TGC officers and directors have agreed to vote their 32% holding in TGC’s outstanding shares in favor of the transaction.
Weiss & Lurie is investigating whether TGC’s Board acted in the best interests of shareholders in approving the transaction and the fairness of the deal. Notably, TGC stock traded at a high of $7.75 per share on March 7, 2011.
