Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Beam, Inc. (“Beam” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BEAM) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Suntory Holdings Ltd. (“Suntory”). Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Beam stockholders will receive $83.50 in cash for each share of Beam owned, valuing the transaction at approximately $16 billion including the assumption of Beam’s debt. The investigation concerns whether the Beam Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the $83.50 per share proposed consideration adequately values Beam’s common stock.
