At the time of the merger, Standard Pacific will implement a 1 for 5 reverse stock split after which Ryland shareholders will receive 1.0191 shares of Standard Pacific common stock for each share of Ryland common stock they own, with fractional shares paid out in cash. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Ryland breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Standard Pacific is underpaying for Ryland shares. Upon completion of the merger, Ryland shareholders will own a minority 41% of the combined company.
