Law Firm Kirby McInerney LLP Investigating Potential Claims On Behalf Of Hi-Tech Pharmacal Co., Inc. Shareholders

Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Hi-Tech Pharmacal Co., Inc. (“Hi-Tech” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:HITK) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Akorn, Inc. (“Akorn”). Under the terms of the agreement, Akorn will acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Hi-Tech for $43.50 per share in cash, for a total transaction value of approximately $640 million.
