NEW YORK, March 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of Communications Systems, Inc. ("CSI" or the "Company") (JCS) - Get Report in connection with the Company's proposed merger with Pineapple Energy, LLC ("Pineapple"), a privately-held U.S. operator and consolidator of residential solar, battery storage, and grid services solutions. Under the terms of the merger agreement, CSI and Pineapple will combine through a reverse merger that will result in the combined company continuing to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the new ticker symbol "PEGY." In conjunction with the merger, CSI intends to divest substantially all its current operating and non-operating assets. CSI expects the sale proceeds from any pre-merger divestitures to be distributed in the form of a cash dividend to existing CSI shareholders prior to the effective date of the merger. In addition, CSI expects to distribute to the pre-merger shareholders a cash dividend of at least $1.00 per share prior to the closing of the merger. Moreover, under the terms of the merger agreement, (i) each CSI shareholder as of the merger record date, will receive Contingent Value Rights ("CVRs") that reflect the right to receive that shareholder's percentage of the net proceeds from the sale of legacy CSI businesses and assets, after the closing; and (ii) current CSI shareholders will retain shares in the combined company, initially holding approximately 37% of total shares outstanding.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether CSI's board acted in the best interest of CSI's public shareholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction, whether the percentage of the combined company that CSI shareholders will retain is fair and whether all information regarding the process undertaken by the board and the valuation of the transaction will be fully and fairly disclosed to CSI's public shareholders.
