Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of R.G. Barry Corporation (“R.G. Barry” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:DFZ) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Mill Road Capital (“Mill Road”). Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, R.G. Barry stockholders will receive $19.00 in cash for each share of R.G. Barry common stock they own, valuing the transaction at approximately $215 million.

The investigation concerns whether the R.G. Barry Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the proposed consideration adequately values R.G. Barry’s common stock.
