Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC) arising from its proposed acquisition by Apax Partners, a private equity firm.

Under the terms of the tender offer, stockholders will receive $12.50 per share in cash for each Epicor share. The acquisition is expected to close in six to nine months.

Shareholders representing approximately 19% of Epicor’s outstanding shares have entered into support agreements with Apax in connection with the transaction.

Weiss & Lurie is investigating whether Epicor’s Board acted in the best interests of shareholders in approving the transaction and whether the Board properly sought to maximize shareholder value. Notably, several analysts set Epicor’s price target at or above $13.00, with a high target of $14.00.
