Under the proposed agreement, the investor group led by Thoma Bravo will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Blue Coat for $25.81 per share in cash.

The investigation concerns whether Blue Coat’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain the best price possible for Blue Coat’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with the investor group led by Thoma Bravo. Indeed, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a $28.00 per share price target for Blue Coat stock.
