Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Charming Shoppes, Inc. Over Its Agreement To Be Acquired By Ascena Retail Group, Inc.

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., a national securities firm with offices in Delaware and New York, announces that it is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Charming Shoppes, Inc. (“Charming Shoppes” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: CHRS) over the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Ascena Retail Group, Inc. (“Ascena”) (NASDAQ GS: ASNA) in a cash transaction valued at approximately $890 million. The transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals, and is expected to close during the second calendar quarter of 2012.

Under the terms of the agreement, Ascena has agreed to make a cash tender offer for all outstanding shares of Charming Shoppes common stock at a price of $7.35 per share. However, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for Charming Shoppes stock at $9.00.

The investigation concerns whether Charming Shoppes’ board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best price possible for Charming Shoppes’ shareholders before entering into an agreement with Ascena.
