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 Oplink Communications, Inc. (“Oplink” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: OPLK) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Koch Optics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc. (“Koch”).
On November 19, 2014, Oplink and Koch announced the signing of a definitive agreement pursuant to which Koch will acquire Oplink in a transaction valued at approximately $445 million. Under the terms of the transaction, Oplink shareholders are anticipated to receive $24.25 in cash for each share of Oplink common stock they own.
The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company’s shares of common stock. In particular, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for Oplink stock at $26.25 per share.
