Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Teavana Holdings, Inc. (“Teavana”) (NYSE: TEA) to Starbucks Corp. for shareholders. Under the proposed deal valued at approximately $620 million, Teavana shareholders will only receive $15.50 in cash for each share of Teavana stock owned, well below at least one analyst’s estimated value of $29.00 per share and the 52-week high of $26.03.

The Teavana sale investigation centers on whether Teavana’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Teavana’s stock, and whether Teavana’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to an analyst with Yahoo! Finance, the true inherent value of Teavana could be as high as $29.00 per share, well above the proposed price of $15.50. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “Based upon analysts’ estimates, the recent performance of the company, and other factors, we believe that this transaction may undervalue Teavana stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
