The investigation concerns whether the optionsXpress Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to optionsXpress stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether Schwab is underpaying for optionsXpress shares, thus unlawfully harming optionsXpress stockholders. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target of $21.00 per share of optionsXpress stock and, for the most recent quarter, the Company had approximately $16.52 per share in cash, net of debt.
