Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Comverse Technology, Inc. (“Comverse” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: CMVT) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Verint Systems Inc.

Under the terms of the proposal, a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of Verint will acquire Comverse, and Verint will issue to Comverse’s shareholders new Verint common shares in an amount equal to approximately 27.5 million Verint common shares (16.3 million common shares currently held by Comverse and approximately 11.2 million common shares underlying the convertible preferred shares at the expected time of the transaction closing) plus up to an additional $25 million in Verint common shares (approximately 880,592 shares based on Verint’s August 10, 2012 closing stock price of $28.39).
