The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of LIN Media LLC (“LIN” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MEG) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of LIN relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Media General, Inc. (“Media General”).

Under the terms of the transaction, LIN shareholders can elect to receive $27.82 in cash or 1.5762 shares of the new holding company for each share of LIN they own. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst following LIN has set a target price of $32.00 per share.

The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s board of directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Media General is underpaying for LIN shares.
