Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Union Drilling, Inc. (“Union Drilling” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: UDRL) (ISIN: US90653P1057) concerning the proposed acquisition of Union Drilling by Sidewinder Drilling Inc. in a cash transaction valued at approximately $242 million.
The investigation concerns whether the Union Drilling directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Union Drilling shareholders would receive $6.50 in cash per share of Union Drilling common stock. However, the Price to EBITDA and Revenue multiples are below that of comparable transactions. Additionally, at least one analyst has set a target price of $7.00 per share of Union Drilling common stock.
Union Drilling shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Rebecca Jarmon at
or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 314.
