The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Taleo Corporation (“Taleo”) (NASDAQ: TLEO) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Taleo relating to the proposed acquisition of the company by Oracle. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the board breached its fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.
On February 9, 2012, Oracle announced that it had entered into an agreement providing for Oracle to acquire Taleo for $1.9 billion. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Taleo shareholders will receive $46.00 for each share of Taleo common stock held. However, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a high price target of $50.00 per share.
