The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Questcor Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Questcor” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: QCOR) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Questcor relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Mallinckrodt plc (“Mallinckrodt”). Under the terms of the transaction, Questcor shareholders will receive $30.00 cash and 0.897 Mallinckrodt shares for each share of Questcor common stock they own. 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 Mallinckrodt is underpaying for Questcor shares.
