Attorney Advertising. The law firm of Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty by the Board of Directors of Cogent, Inc. (“Cogent” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:COGT) arising out of the proposed acquisition of Cogent by 3M Co. (“3M”).

On Monday, August 30, 2010, 3M and Cogent announced that 3M will acquire Cogent pursuant to an all cash offer. Under the terms of the agreement, Cogent stockholders will receive cash of $10.50 in exchange for each share of Cogent common stock. However, the Company may not have adequately shopped itself before entering into this transaction and, pursuant to this proposed transaction, 3M may be underpaying for Cogent, thus unlawfully harming Cogent shareholders.

Wolf Haldenstein has been representing individual and institutional investors for many years, serving as lead counsel in numerous cases in U.S. federal and state courts. Please visit the Wolf Haldenstein website ( for more information about the firm.
