Under the proposed agreement, SRA shareholders will receive $31.25 in cash for each share of SRA common stock they own.
The investigation concerns whether SRA’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best price possible for SRA’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with Providence Equity Partners. Indeed, SRA Founder and Chairman, Ernst Volgenau, who owns a total of approximately 11.8 million shares of SRA Class A and Class B common stock, representing 21% of total shares outstanding and 71% of voting rights, has already agreed to vote his shares for approval of the merger.
As recent as February 8, 2011, SRA announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2011 wherein it reported that revenue was up 5% year-over-year. SRA President and CEO Stan Sloane said that the Company’s “pipeline of opportunities in the Federal market is robust. We are taking proactive steps to ensure our continued competitiveness, and are committed to delivering organic growth.” SRA Executive Vice President and CFO Rick Nadeau added, “[o]perating cash flow was strong in the quarter.
