The Law Office of Abe Shainberg is investigating the Board of Directors of Genoptix, Inc. (“Genoptix” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: GXDX) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Novartis AG (“Novartis”) (NYSE: NVS). Under the terms of the transaction, Genoptix shareholders will receive $25.00 cash for each share of Genoptix common stock they own, for a total transaction value of approximately $470 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Genoptix Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to Genoptix stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether Novartis is underpaying for Genoptix shares, thus unlawfully harming Genoptix stockholders. At least one analyst set a price target of $28.00 per share and Genoptix stock traded as high as $38.79 per share as recently as April 30, 2010.
