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 E2open, Inc. (“E2open” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EOPN) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Insight Venture Partners (“Insight”).
On February 5, 2015, E2open and Insight announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Insight will acquire E2open in a transaction valued at approximately $273 million. Under the terms of the transaction, E2open shareholders are anticipated to receive $8.60 in cash for each share of E2open common stock held. The transaction is expected to close before the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2016, though E2open shareholders will most likely be asked to vote on the transaction well before that time.
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 E2open stock at $10.00 per share.
