Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities law firm, announces an investigation into the proposed acquisition of AMREP Corp. (NYSE: AXR). On September 8, 2010, Nicholas Karabots, the Vice Chairman of AMREP and owner of 60% of the outstanding shares of AMREP, offered to acquire the remaining shares of AMREP that he does not already own for $12 per share in cash.

In addition, Mr. Karabots announced that certain other stockholders of AMREP could participate in the transaction with him, and that he has no interest in selling his interest in AMREP to anyone else.

The investigation concerns, among other things, whether the consideration to be paid to AMREP shareholders is grossly unfair, inadequate, and substantially below the fair or inherent value of AMREP. Indeed, analysts have projected that AMREP’s true inherent value is in excess of $15 per share. The investigation further concerns whether the directors of AMREP may not be acting in AMREP shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process of AMREP.
