The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Outerwall Inc. ("Outerwall" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OUTR) relating to the proposed buyout of Outerwall by affiliates of certain funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC, in a transaction valued at approximately $1.6 billion. The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company's Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to 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. Under the terms of the agreement, Outerwall shareholders are anticipated to receive $52.00 in cash for each share of Outerwall common stock held. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in no real gain or a loss for many long-term shareholders of Outerwall, especially given that the Company's 52-week high is $82.87. Additionally, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for Outerwall stock at $58.00 per share. If you currently own common stock of Outerwall and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, or you would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted by Brower Piven, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentinvestigations.html.
