Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Valassis Communications, Inc. (“Valassis” or the “Company”) (NYSE: VCI) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Harland Clarke Holdings Corp. (“Harland”). Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Valassis stockholders will receive $34.04 in cash for each share of Valassis owned, valuing the transaction at approximately $1.84 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the Valassis Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the $34.04 per share proposed consideration adequately values Valassis’ common stock.
