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 Talen Energy Corporation (NYSE: TLN) (“Talen Energy” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to private investment firm Riverstone Holdings LLC (“Riverstone”). On June 3, 2016, the two parties announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Riverstone will acquire Talen Energy in a merger in a deal worth $5.2 billion. As a result of the merger, Talen Energy shareholders are only anticipated to receive $14.00 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Talen Energy.
Andrews & Springer’s investigation so far has revealed that the consideration Talen Energy shareholders are expected to receive is inadequate. The consideration is less than the $15.00 per share price target given by SunTrust Robinson Humphrey in May 2016, one month before the merger was announced. While the Company claims that shareholders will receive a premium for their shares, the $14.00 per share consideration is still 15.8% below Talen Energy’s 52-week high of $16.22. Our investigation has also revealed that the process leading up to the announcement of the merger appears to have significant conflicts of interest thus making the process and consideration unfair.
