Kendall Law Group, led by former federal Judge Joe Kendall, is investigating Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSYS) and its Board of Directors on behalf of shareholders in connection with the proposed sale to Westport (Nasdaq: WPRT). Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Westport will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Fuel Systems common stock in a stock-for-stock transaction. Fuel Systems shareholders will receive 2.129 Westport shares for each share of Fuel Systems common stock they own at closing. This agreement only represents a 10% premium to Fuel Systems shareholders based on the closing prices of Westport's and Fuel Systems' shares on August 31, 2015; an implied value of $7.54 per share for Fuel Systems shareholders.

The Kendall Law Group is investigating to determine whether the transaction substantially undervalues Fuel Systems because at least one Wall Street financial analyst believes Fuel Systems has a price target of $11 per share, and the consensus analyst price target is $9.38.

The national securities firm's investigation seeks to determine whether Fuel Systems and its Board breached their fiduciary duties by failing to fulfill its fiduciary duties, failing to maximize the value of the Company, failing to disclose all material benefits and costs, and failing to obtain the best possible consideration for Fuel Systems shareholders.
