Law Firm Kirby McInerney LLP Investigating Potential Claims On Behalf Of TMS International Corp. Shareholders

Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of TMS International Corp. (“TMS” or the “Company”) (NYSE:TMS) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by The Pritzker Organization, LLC. (“Pritzker”). Under the terms of the agreement, Akorn will acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Hi-Tech for $17.50 per share in cash, for a total transaction value of approximately $1 billion.
