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 and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Bally Technologies, Inc. (“Bally” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BYI) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Scientific Games Corporation (“Scientific Games”).
On August 1, 2014, Bally and Scientific Games announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Scientific Games will acquire Bally in a transaction valued at approximately $5.1 billion.
Under the terms of the transaction, Bally shareholders are anticipated to receive $83.30 in cash for each share of Bally they own. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Bally stock at $90.00 per share. 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 the transaction, and whether Scientific Games is underpaying for Bally shares.
