BALA CYNWYD, Pa., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of ISTA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("ISTA" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ISTA) relating to the proposed acquisition by Bausch & Lomb.
Under the terms of the transaction, ISTA shareholders would receive only $9.10 in cash for each share of ISTA stock they own.

The transaction may undervalue ISTA as ISTA stock traded at $11.26 on May 10, 2011. In addition, the medium analyst price target for ISTA stock was $10.50 per share and an analyst has set a price target on ISTA stock at $12.00 per share.
