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 SFN Group, Inc. (NYSE: SFN) arising from its proposed acquisition by Randstad Holding NV, a Netherlands-based HR company.

Under the acquisition agreement, Randstad will commence a tender offer for all shares of SFN for $14 per share. The transaction is expected to close in September 2011, subject to customary closing conditions including regulatory approvals and the tender of at least 50% of SFN’s outstanding shares.

Weiss & Lurie is investigating whether SFN’s Board acted in the best interests of its shareholders in approving the acquisition and whether the Board properly sought to maximize shareholder value. Notably, SFN stock traded at a high of $15.39 as recently as April 6, 2011. Several analysts have set the price target for SFN stock above $14 per share, with a high target of $17 per share.
