STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of MICROS Systems, Inc. (“MICROS” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MCRS) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of MICROS relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Oracle Corp. (“Oracle”).
On June 23, 2014, MICROS and Oracle announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Oracle will acquire MICROS in a merger valued at approximately $5.3 billion. Under the terms of the transaction, the Company’s shareholders will receive $68.00 per share in cash in exchange for each share of MICROS stock they own.
The consideration that MICROS shareholders are expected to receive does not appear to offer a premium based on price targets set by a Yahoo! Finance analyst who recently set a price target of $68.00 per share, the same consideration MICROS shareholders are expected to receive.
The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s board of directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Oracle is underpaying for MICROS shares.
