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 Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (“Blue Coat” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: BCSI) arising from its agreement to be acquired by an investor group led by San Francisco based private equity investment firm Thoma Bravo, LLC (“Thoma”). Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Blue Coat shareholders will receive $25.81 cash per share. The proposed transaction has a total value of $1.3 billion.
Weiss & Lurie is investigating whether Blue Coat’s Board acted in the best interests of its shareholders in approving the transaction, including whether the consideration being paid to shareholders is fair in light of the true inherent value of the Company. The Company’s stock traded at levels that exceeded $32.00 per share as recently as January 2011, and at least one analyst has valued the Company at $28.00 per share. The investigation also focuses on whether the Board’s “review of all strategic options” prior to the agreement included an adequate sales process.
