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 WCI Communities, Inc. (NYSE: WCIC) (“WCI” or the “Company”) relating to the proposed buyout of WCI by Lennar Corporation.
Under the terms of the agreement, WCI shareholders are anticipated to receive $11.75 in cash and a fraction of a share of Lennar Class A common stock with a value of $11.75, based on the volume weighted average price of Lennar’s Class A common stock on the New York Stock Exchange over the ten trading days preceding the WCI stockholder vote on the merger. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in no real gain or a loss for many WCI shareholders, especially given that the Company’s 52-week high is $25.00 per share.
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. For example, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for WCI stock at $25.00 per share.
If you currently own common stock of WCI 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.
