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 Mavenir Systems, Inc. (“Mavenir” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MVNR) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Mitel Networks Corporation (“Mitel”).
On March 2, 2015, Mavenir and Mitel announced the signing of a definitive agreement pursuant to which Mitel will acquire Mavenir in a transaction valued at approximately $560 million.
Under the terms of the transaction, Mitel will commence an exchange offer pursuant to which Mavenir stockholders will be entitled to elect to receive either all-cash or all-stock consideration for each share of Mavenir common stock, subject to proration, in either case with a value of $11.08 plus 0.675 of a Mitel common share, or $17.94 based on the closing price of a Mitel common share on February 27, 2015. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015, though Mavenir 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 Mavenir stock at $24.00 per share.
