WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Oiltanking Partners, L.P. (NYSE:OILT) (“Oiltanking” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (“Enterprise”). On November 12, 2014, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Enterprise will acquire Oiltanking in a merger in a deal worth $1.4 billion. As a result of the merger, Oiltanking unitholders are only anticipated to receive a fixed ratio of 1.3 common units of Enterprise in exchange for each unit of Oiltanking.
Andrews & Springer’s investigation focuses on the insufficient consideration that Oiltanking unitholders are expected to receive. Analysts at Yahoo! Finance have set a $61.00 per unit price target for Oiltanking, which is approximately 18.67% more than what Oiltanking unitholders are expected to receive based on Enterprise’s unit price as of November 21, 2014. Following the merger, Oiltanking unitholders are expected to be substantially diluted. Additionally, the 1.3 fixed exchange ratio restricts the value that Oiltanking unitholders are expected to receive by exposing Oiltanking unitholders to the volatility of Enterprise’s unit price. In this year alone, Enterprise has traded as low as $32.32 on February 5, 2014.
