LIN Media Shareholder Alert: Former SEC Attorney Willie Briscoe And Powers Taylor LLP Investigate Merger With Media General

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 LIN Media LLC (“LIN”) (NYSE: LIN) related to the merger with Media General, Inc. Under the terms of the transaction, valued at approximately $1.6 billion, LIN shareholders can choose to receive $27.82 in cash or 1.5762 shares of Media General, Inc. for each LIN share owned. This consideration is well below at least one analyst’s estimated value of $32.00 per share.

The LIN investigation centers on whether LIN’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 that the true inherent value of the Company could be as high as $32 per share.
