Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Cadence Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Cadence”) (NasdaqGS: CADX) related to the sale to Mallinckrodt plc for shareholders. Cadence shareholders will receive just $14.00 in cash for each share owned under the terms of the transaction, which is well below an analyst estimated $15.00 per share.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 239-4568, or via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com, or Patrick Powers at Powers Taylor LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at shareholder@powerstaylor.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

The Cadence investigation centers on whether Cadence’s Board of Directors is acting in the shareholders’ best interests, whether the board is properly considering the proposed price for the shareholders, and whether the board has employed an adequate process to review and act on the proposed transaction. Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance estimates the Company could be worth as high as $15 per share.
