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