Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Obagi Medical Products, Inc. (“Obagi”) (NasdaqGS: OMPI) to Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed transaction valued at approximately $360 million, Obagi shareholders will only receive $19.75 in cash for each share of stock owned.

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