Block & Leviton LLP Investigates Novellus Systems, Inc.'s Board Of Directors For Possible Breaches Of Fiduciary Duty

 

BOSTON, Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP is investigating whether the Board of Directors of Novellus Systems, Inc. ("Novellus" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVLS) breached their fiduciary duties in agreeing to sell the Company to Lam Research Corporation (NASDAQ: LRCX) in a stock-for-stock transaction valued at only $3.3 billion

The investigation centers on whether Novellus' Board of Directors protected shareholder interests, and properly maximized shareholder value, by agreeing to sell the Company for approximately $44.42 per share, a paltry premium of a mere 28% over the Company's closing stock price on Wednesday, December 14, 2011.  Indeed, Novellus' stock price hit a high of $41.82 per share earlier this year, making the premium nearly non-existent for the Company's shareholders. 

If you own stock in Novellus and want to discuss your rights with regard to this transaction or if you have any questions, please contact Mark Alan Delaney at (617) 398-5650 or Mark@blockesq.com
