Block & Leviton LLP Investigates Williams Controls For Possible Breaches Of Fiduciary Duty In Connection With Its Acquisition By Curtiss-Wright Corp.
BOSTON, Nov. 1, 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 duties by the Board of Directors of Williams Controls ("Williams" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT WMCO) with regards to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Curtiss-Wright Corp. ("Curtiss-Wright") in a cash and stock transaction scheduled to close in early 2013.
Under the terms of the agreement, Curtiss-Wright will acquire Williams Controls in a cash tender offer for $15.42 per share, representing a total purchase price of approximately $119 million. Block & Leviton's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether Williams' Directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value in the proposed acquisition by Curtiss-Wright, and the fairness of the process by which the Williams Directors considered and approved the transaction.
