Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. (“Winn-Dixie” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: WINN) relating to the proposed acquisition by BI-LO, LLC (“BI-LO”).
Under the terms of the transaction, Winn-Dixie shareholders would receive $9.50 in cash for each share of Winn-Dixie stock they own.
