Kendall Law Group, led by former federal judge Joe Kendall, is investigating Gerber Scientific Inc. (NYSE: GRB) (“Gerber”) for shareholders in connection with the proposed acquisition of the company by Vector Capital Corporation (“Vector”). The national securities firm’s investigation seeks to determine whether Gerber and its Board breached their fiduciary duties by entering into the agreement without properly shopping for a deal that would provide the best value for shareholders. If you are a Gerber shareholder and would like additional information about your rights, contact the Kendall Law Group at 877-744-3728 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On June 13, 2011, the companies announced the definitive merger agreement under which Gerber would be acquired by Vector, in a transaction valued at approximately $281 million. Under the terms of the agreement, Gerber stockholders will receive $11.00 in cash for each share they own. The offer represents approximately 22% premium over Gerber’s average trading price for the last 30 days. However, Gerber was closed at $9.84 on April 6, 2011 and $9.69 as recently May 31, 2011. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine whether Gerber and its Board undertook a fair process in negotiating the deal.
