Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Inhibitex, Inc.’s Agreement To Be Acquired By Bristol-Myers Squibb Company

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Inhibitex, Inc. (“Inhibitex” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INHX) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (“Bristol-Myers”) in a transaction with an approximate value of $2.5 billion.

Under the proposed agreement, Bristol-Myers Squibb will commence a cash tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of Inhibitex’s common stock for $26.00 per share.

The investigation concerns whether Inhibitex’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain the best price possible for Inhibitex shareholders before entering into the agreement with Bristol-Myers. Indeed, shareholders with beneficial ownership of approximately 17% of Inhibitex’s common stock have already entered into agreements with Bristol-Myers to support the transaction and to tender their shares in the tender offer.

If you own the common stock of Inhibitex and purchased your shares before January 7, 2012, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
