Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Ancestry.com (“Ancestry.com” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: ACOM) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Spectrum Equity Investors V, L.P.--a company owned by the private equity firm Permira--and co-investors comprised of Ancestry.com’s CEO and CFO. As part of this transaction, Ancestry.com’s CEO and President, Tim Sullivan, and the Company’s CFO/COO, Howard Hochhauser, will maintain a majority of their equity stakes in the Company.

Under the terms of the transaction, Ancestry.com shareholders will receive $32 for each share of Ancestry.com stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $1.6 billion. The investigation concerns whether the Ancestry.com Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether Hochhauser and Sullivan are taking advantage of their positions as controlling shareholders in order to purchase the Company at an unfair price. In particular, shares of Ancestry.com stock have traded above the offer price as recently as August 17, 2012 and at least one analyst has set a price target for Ancestry.com stock at $45 per share.
