BOSTON, Dec. 19, 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 Gardner Denver, Inc. ("Gardner Denver" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GDI) concerning the discussed acquisition of the Company by SPX Corporation ("SPX") (NYSE: SPW).
News reports have estimated that the deal would be valued at approximately $85.00 for each Gardner Denver share owned. A transaction price of $85.00 per share represents a paltry 15% premium over the Company's share price prior to the most recent news reports. Moreover, the proposed price of $85.00 per share represents a premium of just 1% over the Company's 12-month high. Not surprisingly, the mean consensus amongst analysts is that the Company's stock price will "outperform" current estimates.
Block & Leviton's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether Gardner Denver's Directors would be breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value if the potential acquisition by SPX is consummated.
