The investigation is focused on whether the Board of Directors fulfilled its fiduciary duties to shareholders in evaluating this transaction. This transaction appears to hold little value for shareholders as Equal Energy has recently traded at $5.50 per share (December 5, 2013) and $4.89 per share (January 2012). It appears that one of Equal Energy’s largest shareholders has also expressed concerns about the company’s strategic direction.
