In the 20-week period prior to the merger announcement, MAKO shares increased in value over 56%. “Based on this, and other factors, we do not believe that the buyout price adequately takes into consideration future share value,” said shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe. The MAKO investigation centers on whether shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed deal, whether the transaction properly values MAKO stock, and whether MAKO’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal.
