The Arbitron sale investigation centers on whether Arbitron’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Arbitron’s stock, and whether Arbitron’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “due to the proposed sale price, the size of the deal and other factors, we believe that this transaction may undervalue Arbitron’s stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
