WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Magma Design Automation, Inc.(“Magma” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: LAVA) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Synopsys, Inc.

Under the proposed agreement, Synopsys will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Magma for $7.35 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether Magma’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain the best price possible for Magma’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with Synopsys. Indeed, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target of $11.00 per share for Magma stock. Moreover, on December 1, 2011, Magma reported revenue of $38.3 million for its fiscal 2012 second quarter ended Oct. 30, 2011, up 13 percent from the $33.9 million reported in the year-ago second quarter. Magma chairman and CEO, Rajeev Madhavan, commented: “During the second quarter, Magma made great business and technical progress--adding a record number of new logos and generating positive cash flow for the 11th consecutive quarter[.]” (Emphasis added).
