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 Taminco Corporation (“Taminco” or the “Company”) (NYSE: TAM) relating to the sale of the Company to Eastman Chemical Company (“Eastman”). On September 11, 2014, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Eastman will acquire Taminco in a merger in a deal worth $2.8 billion. As a result of the merger, Taminco shareholders are only anticipated to receive $26.00 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Taminco they own.
Our investigation so far has revealed that the consideration Taminco shareholders are expected to receive is significantly inadequate. Tellingly, shares of Taminco closed at $26.21 today, $.21 above the anticipated $26.00 per share consideration. Also, an analyst at Yahoo! Finance has set a $27.00 per share price target for Taminco. The sales process leading up to the announcement of the merger also appears to have significant conflicts of interest, thus making the process and consideration unfair. Taminco’s controlling shareholder, Apollo Global Management, controls 53.7% of Taminco’s common shares and also controls 5 out of the 11 board seats on Taminco’s board.
