Sun Healthcare Group Investor Alert: The Briscoe Law Firm And Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sun Healthcare Group, Inc. Sale To Genesis Healthcare For Shareholders

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Sun Healthcare Group, Inc. (“Sun Healthcare” or “SUNH”) (NASDAQ: SUNH) to Genesis Healthcare for shareholders. Under the proposed transaction, Sun Healthcare shareholders will receive only $8.50 in cash for each share of Sun Healthcare stock owned.

The definitive merger agreement involves a transaction with a total equity value of approximately $275 million net of cash and debt acquired.

The investigation centers on whether Sun Healthcare shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Sun Healthcare stock, and whether Sun Healthcare’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Notably, the proposed merger price of $8.50 is well below the 52 week high of $8.77 per SUNH share. According to shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe, “Because of the lack of a significant premium to the shareholders, and other factors, we believe that the transaction may undervalue Sun Healthcare stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
