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 Compuware Corporation (“Compuware” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CPWR) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by private-equity firm Thoma Bravo, LLC (“Thoma Bravo”).

Under the terms of the transaction, valued at approximately $2.5 billion, shareholders are anticipated to receive $10.92 in cash for each share of Compuware 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 Thoma Bravo is underpaying for Compuware shares.
