Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of OfficeMax will receive 2.69 Office Depot common shares for each share of OfficeMax they own. Based on Office Depot’s closing stock price of $5.02 on February 19, 2013, OfficeMax shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $13.50 per share.

The investigation concerns whether OfficeMax’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for OfficeMax’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Office Depot. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for OfficeMax stock at $17.00.
