Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Martek Biosciences Corp. (“Martek” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: MATK) concerning its potential acquisition by Royal DSM N.V. (“Royal”). Under the terms of the offer, Martek shareholders will receive $31.50 in cash for each share of Royal common stock owned for a total transaction value of approximately $1.09 billion.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the deal price to Martek’s shareholders, the process by which Martek’s directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interests on the part of Martek Board members. Martek’s recently announced fourth quarter results showed revenue growth and significant operational improvements.
