(“McCormick & Schmick” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq - MSSR) relating to the proposed acquisition by a subsidiary of Landry’s Inc. Under the terms of the transaction McCormick & Schmick shareholders would receive $8.75 in cash for each share McCormick & Schmick stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of McCormick & Schmick for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process to Landry’s. The transaction may undervalue McCormick & Schmick as McCormick & Schmick stock traded at $11.64 on April 14, 2010 and traded at $9.26 as recently as July 21, 2011. In addition, in April of 2011 the Company adopted a poison pill to prevent a hostile takeover at $9.25 per share.
