Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Geeknet, Inc. ("Geeknet" or "the Company") (Nasdaq: GKNT) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Hot Topic, Inc. ("Hot Topic").

Under the terms of the transaction, Geeknet is being sold for only $122 million and Geeknet shareholders will receive only $17.50 in cash for each share of Geeknet stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Geeknet breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Hot Topic is underpaying for Geeknet. The transaction may undervalue Geeknet and will result in a loss for many long term holders of Geeknet stock. For example, Geeknet stock traded at $19.19 per share as recently as January 7, 2014. As a result, the investigation will focus on the sales process and other strategic alternatives that could have enhanced shareholder value.
