Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities law firm, announces an investigation into the acquisition of Hudson Holding Corp. (OTCBB: HDHL). Rodman & Renshaw Capital Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: RODM) and Hudson announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Rodman will acquire Hudson. The terms of the merger agreement provides for each Hudson share to be exchanged for 0.0338 shares of Rodman common stock. The deal is valued at approximately $7 million ($0.091 per share), based upon a $2.69 valuation per share of Rodman’s stock. In addition, certain Hudson management and directors who own approx. 50% of Hudson’s shares have agreed to vote in favor of the merger.

The investigation concerns, among other things, whether the consideration to be paid to Hudson shareholders is grossly unfair, inadequate, and substantially below the fair or inherent value of Hudson. Indeed, the $7 million offer is below the net cash on Hudson’s balance sheet ($10 million), and to a discount to where the stock was trading the day prior to announcement. The investigation further concerns whether the directors of Hudson may not be acting in Altair shareholders' best interests in connection with the proposed transaction.
