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 Bolt Technology Corp. (“Bolt” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BOLT) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (“Teledyne”). On September 3, 2014, Bolt and Teledyne jointly announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement that provides for the merger of Bolt with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Teledyne in a transaction valued at approximately $171 million. Under the terms of the transaction, Bolt stockholders are anticipated to receive $22.00 for each share of Bolt 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 the transaction, and whether Teledyne is underpaying for Bolt shares.
