Finkelstein Thompson LLP Announces Investigation Of GenOn Energy, Inc.

The law firm Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of GenOn Energy, Inc. (“GenOn” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GEN), concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by NRG Energy, Inc. (“NRG”) (NYSE: NRG). Under the terms of the transaction, GenOn shareholders would receive .1216 shares of NRG for every share they own. The current per-share value of the proposed consideration is approximately $2.28, and the total value of the transaction is approximately $1.7 billion.

GenOn has performed well recently, trading above the per-share offer price as recently as March 2012. At least one analyst has set a target price of $4.50 for the Company’s shares.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration to GenOn shareholders, the process by which the Company’s Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interests among GenOn’s Board members.
