Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. ("DuPont") (NYSE: DFT) concerning the sale to Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: DLR). Under the terms of the agreement, DuPont shareholders will only receive 0.545 shares of Digital Realty for each share owned. Based on the closing price of Digital Realty before the deal was announced, the consideration is valued at approximately $63.63, which is virtually no premium over the 52-week high and lower than at least one analyst's estimated value of $64.00 per share.

The investigation centers on whether DuPont's Board of Directors is acting in the shareholders' best interests, whether the board considered alternatives to the acquisition, and whether the board has employed an adequate process to review and act on the proposed transaction. Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance believes the true inherent value of the stock could be as high as $64.00.
