Kendall Law Group, led by former federal judge Joe Kendall, is investigating WCA Waste Corporation (NASDAQ: WCAA) for shareholders in connection with the proposed acquisition by Macquarie Infrastructure Partners II. The national securities firm’s investigation seeks to determine whether WCA and its Board breached their fiduciary duties by entering into the agreement without properly shopping for a deal that would provide better value for shareholders. If you are a WCA shareholder and would like additional information about your rights, contact the Kendall Law Group at 877-744-3728 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On December 21, 2011, WCA announced the definitive merger agreement under which the company would be acquired by Macquarie Infrastructure Partners II, in a transaction valued at approximately $526 million. Under the terms of the agreement, WCA stockholders will receive $6.50 in cash for each share of WCA/WCAA common stock held. While the purchase price represents a premium of approximately 30% over WCA stock’s closing price on December 20, the company’s stock was trading for over $6.00 per share earlier this year. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine whether WCA and its Board undertook a fair process in negotiating the deal.
