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 Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc. (NasdaqGS: FSYS) (“Fuel Systems” or the “Company”) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Westport Innovations Inc.
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.
Under the terms of the transaction, Fuel Systems shareholders are anticipated to receive 2.129 shares of Westport stock for each share of Fuel Systems stock they own. The transaction values Fuel Systems at only approximately $7.54 per share. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for Fuel Systems stock at $11.00 per share.
