Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of WMS Industries, Inc. (“WMS”) (NYSE: WMS) to Scientific Games Corporation for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed deal, which is valued at approximately $1.5 billion, WMS shareholders will only receive $26.00 in cash for each share of WMS stock owned.

The WMS sale investigation centers on whether WMS shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues WMS stock, and whether WMS’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to shareholder rights attorney Patrick Powers, “Based on the proposed sale price, the size of the deal and other factors, we are investigating whether this transaction properly values WMS stock. We will be seeking to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
