Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of K-Swiss, Inc. (“K-Swiss”) (Nasdaq: KSWS) to E.Land World Ltd., a South Korean apparel distribution, for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed deal valued at approximately $170 million, K-Swiss shareholders will only receive $4.75 in cash for each share of K-Swiss stock owned, which is below at least one analyst’s estimate of $5.60 per share. The merger is expected to close in the second quarter of 2013.

The K-Swiss sale investigation centers on whether K-Swiss’ shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues K-Swiss’ stock, and whether K-Swiss’ board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance has estimated that the true inherent value of K-Swiss could be as high as $5.60 per share, well above the proposed sale price. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “due to the proposed sale price, the size of the deal and other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue K-Swiss’ stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
