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 Hittite Microwave Corporation (“Hittite” or “the Company”) (NasdaqGS: HITT) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Hittite relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Analog Devices, Inc. (“Analog Devices”). Under the terms of the transaction, Hittite shareholders will receive $78 in cash for each share of Hittite stock they own, representing a total approximate transaction value of $2 billion. 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 Analog Devices is underpaying for Hittite shares.
