The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the board of directors of URS Corporation (“URS” or the “Company”) (NYSE: URS) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by AECOM Technology Corporation (“AECOM”).

On July 13, 2014 URS and AECOM announced that they had entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which AECOM will acquire URS in a merger valued at approximately $4 billion.

Under the terms of the transaction, shareholders of URS will receive per share consideration equal to $33.00 in cash and 0.734 shares of AECOM common stock for each URS share. URS stockholders may elect to receive all cash or all stock consideration, subject to proration in the event of oversubscription.

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 AECOM is underpaying for URS shares.
