Brower Piven Announces An Investigation Of The Possible Acquisition Of Animal Health International, Inc. By Lextron, Inc.

The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Animal Health International, Inc. (“AHII”) (NASDAQ:AHII) and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of AHII relating to the proposed acquisition of the company by Lextron, Inc. (“Lextron”).

On March 14, 2011, AHII and Lextron jointly announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement for AHII to be acquired by Lextron. The transaction, which was approved by the board of directors, is valued at approximately $111 million, plus the repayment of AHII’s outstanding indebtedness, for a total purchase price of approximately $251 million. Under the terms of the agreement, AHII stockholders will receive $4.25 a share, a premium of approximately 11% over AHII’s closing price on March 11, 2001. However, AHII has been performing well recently. According to AHII’s financial results for the second fiscal quarter, which ended December 31, 2010, net income increased 52.5% to $1.9 million, compared to $1.2 million in last year's second quarter. The net income for the quarter included a one-time adjustment for the completion of the FY2010 Canadian tax provision of $0.4 million. Net income excluding this adjustment would have been $2.3 million and an 87.1% increase over last year. Net sales for the year to date were $374.7 million, an increase of 12.9% compared to $331.8 for the same period a year ago. The transaction for the merger is expected to close by June 30, 2011.
