Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

Under the terms of the transaction, Starwood shareholders will receive only $2.00 in cash and 0.92 of a share of Marriott stock for each share of Starwood stock they own. The transaction values Starwood stock at only approximately $69.82 per share. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Starwood breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Marriott is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue Starwood and will result in a loss for many Starwood shareholders. For example, Starwood stock traded at $87.53 per share as recently as May 18, 2015 and an analyst has set a $93.00 per share price target for Starwood stock.
