Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of VantageSouth will receive 0.3125 shares of Yadkin common stock for each share of VantageSouth they own. Based on Yadkin’s closing stock price on January 24, 2014, VantageSouth shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $5.41 per share.
The investigation concerns whether VantageSouth’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for VantageSouth’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Yadkin. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for VantageSouth stock at $6.50 per share.
