Finkelstein Thompson LLP Announces Investigation Of Cornerstone Therapeutics Inc. Buyout

The law firm of Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Cornerstone Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: CRTX) (“Cornerstone” or “the Company”), concerning the Company’s proposed acquisition by Chiesi Farmaceutici S. P. A. (“Chiesi”). Under the terms of the merger agreement, Cornerstone shareholders will receive $9.50 in cash for each share of Cornerstone common stock they own. Chiesi currently owns 58% of Cornerstone’s outstanding common shares. The total transaction is valued at approximately $107 million. At least one analyst has set a target price of $14.00 for Cornerstone shares.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration to shareholders, the process by which Cornerstone’s Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interest among the Company’s Board members.
