Harwood Feffer LLP ( www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of BigBand Networks, Inc. (BigBand or the Company) (NASDAQ: BBND) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by ARRIS Group, Inc. (“ARRIS”).
On October 11, 2011, BigBand announced it had entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which the Company would be acquired by ARRIS. Under the terms of the agreement, ARRIS will commence a tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of BigBand common stock within 10 business days. BigBand stockholders will receive $2.24 in cash for each share of Company stock held. BigBand stock has traded as high as $3.28 per share in the last year and $2.25 per share as recently as July 20, 2011.
Our investigation concerns whether the board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and whether the board undertook a fair process and obtained fair consideration for BigBand stockholders.
