Kendall Law Group investigates Millipore Corporation (NYSE:MIL) for investors concerning the proposed acquisition of Millipore by Merck KGaA. The national securities firm is concerned that the Board of Directors of Millipore may have breached their fiduciary duties by entering into an agreement that is unfair to shareholders, without seeking other deals that may have better represented the value of the company. If you are a MIL shareholder and would like additional information about your rights, contact the Kendall Law Group at 877-744-3728 or by email at hlindley@kendalllawgroup.com.

On February 28, 2010, the companies announced that they had entered into an agreement for Millipore to be acquired by Merck in a $7.2 billion transaction. According to the agreement, shareholders will receive $107.00 in cash per MIL share owned, only 13% over the $94.41 closing price before the deal was announced. The transaction is expected to close during the second half of 2010.
