Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Hutchinson Technology Inc. ("Hutchinson" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS:HTCH) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to TDK Corporation for approximately $221 million.

The Company's stockholders will only receive $3.62 in cash per share (plus up to $0.38 per share in a possible additional consideration) of Company common stock they own. However, the offer is below both the median analyst price target of $4.00 per share and the 52-week high of $4.25 per share.
