Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Clinical Data, Inc. (“Clinical Data” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:CLDA) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Forest Laboratories, Inc (“Forest”). Under the terms of the offer, Clinical Data shareholders will receive $30.00 in cash per share owned and contingent consideration of up to $6.00 per share based up upon the achievement of certain commercial milestones related to the Company’s antidepressant drug, Viibryd™. The transaction is valued at approximately $1.2 billion.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration to Clinical Data shareholders, the process by which the Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interests among Clinical Data Board members. In particular, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a target price of $46.00 for Clinical Data shares.
