June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Dole Food Company, Inc. ("Dole" or the "Company") (NYSE: DOLE) (ISIN: US2566031017) (CUSIP: 256603101) concerning the proposed acquisition of Dole by
David H. Murdock, the Company's Chairman of the Board and CEO.
The investigation concerns whether the Dole directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Dole shareholders will be entitled to receive $12.00 per share in cash for each share of Dole common stock. However, shares of Dole common stock traded above the offered price in the past six months.
Dole shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at email@example.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
