Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of Network Equipment will receive $1.35 per share in cash for each share of Network Equipment they own.

The investigation concerns whether Network Equipment’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible price for Network Equipment’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Sonus. At least one analyst on Yahoo! Finance has issued a $3.00 per share target price for Network Equipment.
