(Nasdaq: ATHR) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM). Under the terms of the transaction, Atheros shareholders will receive $45 in cash for each share they own for a total transaction value of approximately $3.1 billion.
