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 AmREIT Inc. ("AmREIT" or the "Company") (NYSE: AMRE) by Edens Investment Trust ("Edens"), a private company. On October 31, 2014, AmREIT announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Edens will acquire all the outstanding shares of AmREIT for $26.55 per share in cash.
