Under the terms of the transaction, Talbots shareholders will receive $2.75 for each share of Talbots stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $369 million, including the assumption of debt. The investigation concerns whether the Talbots Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to Talbots stockholders by accepting an offer below Sycamore’s original bid. In December 2011 Sycamore offered $3.00 per share, but Talbots rejected the offer as being “inadequate and substantially” undervaluing the Company. Talbots stock has traded as high as $3.36 per share as recently as March 22, 2012.
