Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP is investigating whether members of the board of directors of Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the planned merger of the Company with a Qualcomm Incorporated subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. Ikanos designs, develops, markets and sells semiconductors and integrated firmware products for the connected home worldwide.

On August 6, 2015, Ikanos and Qualcomm announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement. Qualcomm will acquire all issued and outstanding shares of Ikanos common stock for $2.75 per share in cash.

The investigation concerns whether the Ikanos board failed to satisfy their duties to the Company's shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for the Company's shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson & Weaver, which focuses its practice on shareholder rights, is investigating whether the proposed deal price represents adequate consideration, especially given the Company's promise of future revenue growth. Moreover, one Wall Street analyst has a $5.00 price target on the stock which is far more than the $2.75 offer price.
