Law Firm Brower Piven Announces Investigation Of Venoco, Inc.
The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Venoco, Inc. (“Venoco”) (NYSE: VQ) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Venoco relating to the proposed acquisition of the company by its Chairman and CEO Timothy Marquez through a wholly owned entity, Denver Parent Corporation (“Mr. Marquez”). The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the board breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.
On January 16, 2012, Venoco announced that they had entered into a definitive agreement with Mr. Marquez, through a wholly owned entity, Denver Parent Corporation. According to the announcement, Venoco shareholders – excluding Mr. Marquez and his affiliated entities – will receive $12.50 per share in cash upon completion of the transaction. However, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a high price target of $20.00 per share.
