Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Gardner Denver, Inc. (“Gardner Denver” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GDI) relating to the proposed acquisition by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (“KKR”).
Under the terms of the transaction, Gardner Denver shareholders will receive only $76.00 in cash for each share of Gardner Denver stock they own.

The transaction may undervalue the Company and will result in a loss for many long term shareholders. For example Gardner Denver stock traded at $79.88 as recently as February 9, 2012 and $91.50 on July 22, 2011. In addition, an analyst has set a price target for Gardner Denver stock at $85.00 per share.
