Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are continuing their investigation into the sale of Physicians Formula Holdings, Inc. (“Physicians Formula”) (NASDAQ: FACE) to Swander Pace Capital for shareholders. On August 15, 2012, Swander Pace agreed to purchase Physicians Formula in a deal valued at approximately $65 million, whereby shareholders would receive $4.25 in cash for each share of Physicians Formula stock owned. However, Physicians Formula announced that it has received a higher unsolicited proposal to acquire all outstanding shares of FACE for $4.90 per share, or $0.65 higher than Swander’s offer. Despite this new offer, Physicians Formula has not changed its recommendation to shareholders.
