Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Asset Acceptance Capital Corporation (“Asset Acceptance” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: AACC) relating to the proposed acquisition by Encore Capital Group, Inc. (“Encore”).
Under the terms of the transaction, Asset Acceptance shareholders will receive only $6.50 in cash for each share of Asset Acceptance stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Asset Acceptance for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process to Encore. The transaction may undervalue the Company and will result in a loss for many long term shareholders. For example Asset Acceptance stock traded at $7.97 as recently as October 15, 2012 and $7.90 on July 5, 2012. In addition, an analyst has set an $8.00 per share price target for Asset Acceptance stock.
