Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Vanguard Health Systems, Inc. (“Vanguard”) (NYSE: VHS) to Tenet Healthcare Corporation for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed sale, Vanguard shareholders will receive only $21 in cash for each share of Vanguard stock owned in a deal valued at approximately $4.3 billion including the assumption of debt.
