Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation ("Vitesse" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:VTSS) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Microsemi Corporation ("Microsemi") (NASDAQ:MSCC). Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Vitesse stockholders will receive $5.28 in cash for each share of Vitesse common stock they own, valuing the transaction at approximately $389 million.
