Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Coventry Health Care, Inc. (“Coventry” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CVH) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Aetna Inc. The cash and stock transaction is valued at approximately $5.7 billion, and under the terms of the deal Coventry shareholders will receive $27.30 in cash and 0.3885 common shares of Aetna for each share of Coventry owned.
This investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors of Coventry breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the proposed transaction, and whether the Company has disclosed all material information to shareholders about the transaction. The Company has seen substantial recent growth. Its share price has skyrocketed from $26.85 on October 3, 2011 to $34.71 on August 16, 2012. Further, at least one analyst has set a target price for the Company’s stock at $40.00.
