The Somerset sale investigation centers on whether Somerset’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Somerset’s stock, and whether Somerset’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe, “due to the proposed sale price, the significant holdings of Somerset and other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue Somerset’s stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
