Law Firm Kirby McInerney LLP Investigating Potential Claims On Behalf Of Vanguard Health Systems, Inc. Shareholders

Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Vanguard Health Systems, Inc. (“Vanguard” or the “Company”) (NYSE: VHS) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Tenet Healthcare Corporation (“Tenet”) (NYSE: THC). Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Tenet will purchase all of the outstanding common stock of Vanguard for $21.00 per share in cash, for a total transaction value of approximately $4.3 billion including the assumption of $2.5 billion of Vanguard debt. The investigation concerns whether the Vanguard Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to this transaction and whether the proposed $21.00 per share consideration adequately values Vanguard common shares.
