Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of SuccessFactors, Inc. (“SuccessFactors” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SFSF) arising from its agreement to be acquired by SAP America, Inc., a subsidiary of SAP AG (“SAP”). The proposed transaction is valued at approximately $3.4 billion.
Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement entered into by the parties, SAP will commence a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of SuccessFactors for $40.00 per share in cash. The tender offer is scheduled to commence within 10 business days of December 3, 2011.
Weiss & Lurie is investigating whether SuccessFactors’ Board breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in approving the transaction. The investigation includes whether the proposed transaction provides adequate value to SuccessFactors’ shareholders and whether the Board failed to adequately shop the Company before entering into the agreement. SuccessFactors’ stock has traded at more than the $40.00 per share agreed to by the Board and prior to the announcement of the deal, at least one analyst had set the price target for the stock at $45 per share.
