Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of CEC Entertainment, Inc. (“CEC” or the “Company”) (NYSE:CEC) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by an affiliate of Apollo Global Management, LLC (“Apollo”) (NYSE:APO). Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, CEC shareholders will receive $54.00 in cash for each share of CEC owned, valuing the transaction at approximately $1.3 billion, including the assumption of CEC’s outstanding debt.

The investigation concerns whether the CEC Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the $54.00 per share proposed consideration adequately values CEC’s common stock.
