Asset Acceptance Capital Shareholder Alert: Briscoe Law Firm And Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale To Encore Capital Group

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Asset Acceptance Capital Corp. (“AACC”) (Nasdaq: AACC) to Encore Capital Group, Inc. for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed transaction valued at approximately $200 million, AACC shareholders will only receive $6.50 for each share of AACC stock owned, with the option to receive the consideration in either cash or Encore stock or a combination of both. The proposed consideration is well below at least one analyst’s estimated value of $8.00 per share.

The AACC sale investigation centers on whether AACC’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues AACC’s stock, and whether AACC’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Notably, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has estimated that the true value of the shares may be as high as $8.00 per share. Shareholder rights attorney Patrick Powers stated that “due to proposed sale price, analysts’ estimates and other factors, we are concerned that this transaction undervalues AACC’s stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
