Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Clarient, Inc. (“Clarient” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CLRT) concerning the Company’s receipt of an offer to purchase all outstanding common shares of the Company for $5 per share and each outstanding preferred share for $20 by GE Healthcare, Inc. The proposed offer is valued at approximately $580 million and is expected to close in late 2010 or early 2011.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the transaction price to Clarient shareholders, the process by which the Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interests among Clarient Board members. Stockholders holding approximately 47% of Clarient’s current outstanding voting stock have agreed to tender their shares in the proposed offer, about 35% of which is held by insiders and major shareholders of the Company. Additionally, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a target price of $6 for Clarient stock.
