Saks Inc. Shareholder Alert: The Briscoe Law Firm And Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale Of Saks To Hudson’s Bay

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Saks, Inc. (“Saks”) (NYSE: SKS) to Hudson’s Bay for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed merger agreement, valued at approximately $2.9 billion, Saks shareholders will receive only $16 in cash for each share of Saks stock owned, well below at least one analyst’s estimated value of $18.50.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, please contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 239-4568, via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com or Zach Groover at Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607 or via email at shareholder@powerstaylor.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

The Saks sale investigation centers on whether shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed deal, whether the transaction properly values Saks stock, and whether Saks’ board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. At least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance estimates that the true inherent value of Saks could be as high as $18.50 per share, well above the proposed sale price.
