The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Virgin Media Inc. (“Virgin Media” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: “VMED”) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Virgin Media relating to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Liberty Global, Inc. (“Liberty”). The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the board of directors of Virgin Media breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.
According to Reuters, Virgin Media shareholders will approximately receive $47.87 in cash and stock for each share of Virgin Media common stock they own. The proposed transaction includes $17.50 in cash, 0.2582 Liberty Class A shares, and 0.1928 Liberty Class C shares for each Virgin Media share. This values the cash and stock part of the deal, excluding debt, at $16 billion. According to Bloomberg, at least one analyst price target is above the deal price.
