(“Winn-Dixie” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: WINN) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by BI-LO, LLC (“BI-LO”) in a transaction with an approximate value of $560 million.

Under the proposed agreement, BI-LO will acquire all of Winn-Dixie’s outstanding shares for $9.50 per share in cash.

The investigation concerns whether Winn-Dixie’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain the best price possible for Winn-Dixie shareholders before entering into the agreement with BI-LO. Indeed, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target of $11.00 per share for Winn-Dixie stock.
