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 EarthLink Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: ELNK) ("EarthLink" or the "Company") relating to the proposed buyout of EarthLink Holdings by Windstream Holdings, Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, EarthLink shareholders are anticipated to receive 0.818 shares of Windstream common stock for each share of EarthLink common stock held. Based on Windstream's closing stock price on November 4, 2016, EarthLink shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $5.92 per share, which is virtually no premium over the Company's 52-week high of $9.50 and lower than, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst's estimated price target of $10.00 per share. 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. If you currently own common stock of EarthLink and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, and 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.
