NEW YORK, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Protective Life Corporation ("Protective Life" or the "Company") (NYSE: PL) (ISIN: US7436741034) (CUSIP: 743674103) concerning the proposed acquisition of Protective Life by Dai-ichi Life Insurance Co.
Protective Life shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
The investigation concerns whether the Protective Life directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, each share of Protective Life will be exchanged for $70 in cash. However, the Price to Revenue, EBIT, and Total Assets multiples are below comparable transactions' averages.
