Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Clinical Data, Inc. (“Clinical Data” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGM: CLDA) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct related to the sale of the Company to Forest Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: FRX) for at least $1.2 billion in a tender offer. The proposed transaction offers Clinical Data shareholders $30 per share in cash and a contingent consideration of up to $6 per share if the Company’s newly approved antidepressant Viibryd helps offset the loss of major products in coming years. The deal is structured as a tender offer, which may avoid the need for a shareholder vote, and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2011.
