The Peiffer Rosca Wolf law firm 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.

The investigation concerns whether the Vitesse Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the proposed consideration adequately values the Company's common stock. According to Barron's columnist Tiernan Ray, David Williams and Cody Acree with Ascendiant Capital Markets cut Vitesse shares to a Hold and "think the price is a bit low relative to what they think the stock should have fetched."
