Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Young Innovations, Inc. (YDNT) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by an affiliate of Linden Capital Partners, a Chicago-based private equity firm. Under the terms of the agreement, Linden will acquire all outstanding shares of Young Innovations for $39.50 per share. The agreement was unanimously approved by Young Innovations’ Board of Directors, and values the company at approximately $314 million.
The investigation concerns whether the Young Innovations Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to this transaction and whether the proposed $39.50 per share consideration adequately values Young Innovations common stock. The offer price represents a mere 12.5% premium to the thirty day average closing price of shares before the transaction was announced, but shares have traded above the offer price as recently as September, and the closing price on the day the offer was announced reached $39.79.
If you are a Young Innovations (YDNT) shareholder and wish to obtain additional information, please contact J. Brandon Walker, Esq. by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at (212) 699-1145 or (888) 529-4787.
