Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Inhibitex, Inc. (“Inhibitex” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:INHX) concerning the proposed acquisition of Inhibitex by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (“Bristol-Myers”) in a cash transaction valued at approximately $2.5 billion.
The investigation concerns whether the Inhibitex directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Through the acquisition, Bristol-Meyer stands to gain a very lucrative position in the Hepatitis C drug industry at a time when it is losing patent protection on three of its four top selling drugs. Under the terms of the agreement shareholders would receive $26.00 per share - at least one analyst has set a target price of $34.00 per share.
Inhibitex shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Gustavo Bruckner, Esq. at
