Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Charming Shoppes, Inc. (“Charming” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CHRS) relating to the proposed acquisition by Ascena Retail Group, Inc. (“Ascena”) (Nasdaq: ASNA).

Under the terms of the transaction, Charming shareholders would receive only $7.35 in cash for each share of Charming stock they own.

The transaction may undervalue Charming as an analyst has set a price target for Charming stock at 9.00 per share.
