Bull & Lifshitz, LLP announces an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty in connection with the proposed acquisition of Martek Biosciences Corporation (NASDAQ: MATK) (referred to as "Martek" or the “Company”) by Royal DSM N.V. (“DSM”) in an all cash tender offer valued at approximately US$1.087 billion (about euro 829 million).

Under the terms of the agreement, DSM will pay $31.50 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Martek in the proposed acquisition.
