Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Jefferies Group, Inc. (“Jefferies” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JEF) relating to the proposed acquisition by Leucadia National Corporation, Inc. (“Leucadia”).
Under the terms of the transaction, Jefferies shareholders will receive only 0.81 shares of Leucadia stock for each share of Jefferies stock they own. The transaction values Jefferies stock at approximately $17.24. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Jefferies for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process to Leucadia. The transaction may undervalue the Company and will result in a loss for many Jefferies shareholders. For example Jefferies stock traded at $26.84 on January 14, 2011 and $19.45 as recently as March 26, 2012. In addition, an analyst has set a price target for Jefferies stock at $19.00 per share.
