Law Firm Brower Piven Announces Investigation Of Blue Coat Systems, Inc.
The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (“Blue Coat”) (NasdaqGS: BCSI) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Blue Coat relating to the proposed acquisition of the company by Thoma Bravo, LLC (“Thoma Bravo”). The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the board breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.
On December 9, 2011, Blue Coat and Thoma Bravo announced that the two companies had entered into a definitive merger agreement for Thoma Bravo to acquire Blue Coat for $25.81 per share in cash, or a net purchase price of approximately $1.3 billion. However, at least one analyst on Yahoo! Finance has set a high price target of $28.00 per share. Furthermore, according to the New York Times DealBook column, Blue Coat stock has recently traded higher than the proposed merger price, reaching a high of $32.00 in January 2011.
