Harwood Feffer LLP ( www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Adolor Corp. ("Adolor" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ADLR) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Cubist”).
On October 24, 2011, Adolor and Cubist announced they had entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Cubist will acquire Adolor. Under the terms of the agreement, Cubist will acquire all outstanding shares of Adolor for $4.25 per share in cash. In addition to the cash payment Adolor shareholders would receive one Contingent Payment Right (“CPR”) entitling the holder to receive additional cash payments of up to $4.50 for each share owned if certain benchmarks are achieved. Under the agreement, Cubist will commence a tender offer to purchase all outstanding shares of Adolor for the upfront cash payment and CPR. According to Yahoo Finance, the median analyst target price for Adolor shares is $6.25 per share. At least one analyst has set a target price of $8.00 per share.
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 Adolor stockholders.
