Law Office Of Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces Investigation Of Amerigroup Corporation

Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Amerigroup Corporation (“Amerigroup” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AGP) relating to the proposed acquisition by WellPoint, Inc. (“WellPoint”).

Under the terms of the transaction, Amerigroup shareholders would receive only $92.00 in cash for each share of Amerigroup stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Amerigroup for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process to WellPoint. The transaction may undervalue Amerigroup as, for example, an analyst has placed a $92.00 price target on Amerigroup stock.
