Block & Leviton LLP Investigates Sealy Corporation For Possible Breaches Of Fiduciary Duty In Connection With Its Proposed Acquisition By Tempur-Pedic International Inc.

BOSTON, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP ( www.blockesq.com), a Boston-based law firm representing investors nationwide, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty by the Board of Directors of Sealy Corporation ("Sealy" or the "Company") (NYSE: ZZ) regarding the proposed acquisition of the Company by Temper-Pedic International Inc. ("Tempur-Pedic") (NYSE: TPX) through an all cash tender offer. 

Under the terms of the agreement, Sealy shareholders will receive $2.20 for each Sealy share of common stock.  Based on the Company's closing share price on September 26, 2012, this amounts to less than a 3 % premium.  Block & Leviton's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether Sealy's Directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value in the proposed transaction.  Sealy's shares traded at $2.33 in pre-market trading prior to the merger announcement on Thursday, September 27, 2012, well above the offer price.  The Company's share price hit a 52-week high of $2.45 in April 2012.   

If you have information relevant to this investigation, or if you are a Sealy shareholder and have questions about your legal rights, please contact attorney Steven P. Harte, Esq. at (617) 398-5600 or email him at Steven@blockesq.com.
