STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that it has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Alliance Fiber Optic Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: AFOP) (“Alliance” or the “Company”) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Corning Incorporated.
Under the terms of the agreement, Alliance stockholders will receive $18.50 a share in cash for each share of Alliance common stock held. 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, especially given that according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for Alliance Fiber stock at $20.00 per share.
If you currently own the Company’s common stock and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, or you would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted by Brower Piven, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentinvestigations.html.
