Under the terms of the transaction, Alliant will first spin-off its valuable Outdoor Sports Group. Following the spin-off, Orbital shareholders will receive 0.449 shares of the remaining assets of Alliant for each share of Orbital stock they own. Following the merger the co-founder of Orbital will serve as the President and CEO of the merged company. The investigation concerns whether the Orbital Board of directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Alliant is underpaying for Orbital shares.
