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 Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM) (“Broadcom” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to Avago Technologies Limited (“Avago”). On May 28, 2015, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Avago will acquire Broadcom in a merger worth $37 million. As a result of the merger, Broadcom shareholders are only anticipated to receive $54.50 per share in cash or 0.4378 shares of the newly-formed company in exchange for each share of Broadcom. After news of the merger became public, Broadcom’s share price fell and closed at $56.25.
Andrews & Springer’s investigation has so far uncovered that the consideration Broadcom shareholders are expected to receive is inadequate. Following the merger, Broadcom shareholders are expected to be substantially diluted, owning only 32% of the combined company.
While Broadcom claims that shareholders will receive a premium for their shares, the $54.50 per share consideration represents a 4.8% discount compared to Broadcom’s $57.16 per share price on May 27, 2015, the day before the merger was announced. Additionally, analysts at Yahoo! Finance have set a $63.00 per share price target for Broadcom, which is approximately 15.5% more than what Broadcom shareholders are expected to receive.
