NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Audentes Therapeutics, Inc.

On December 2, 2019, Audentes announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Astellas for $60 per share in cash, or a total of approximately $3 billion. The deal is scheduled to close in the first quarter of 2020.
On December 16, 2019, Astellas Pharma commenced the tender offer to acquire Audentes, and the Company filed a statement with the SEC recommending Audentes shareholders to tender their shares. The tender offer is scheduled to expire on January 14, 2020.
Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that Audentes’ board of directors oversaw an unfair process and ultimately agreed to an inadequate deal price. Accordingly, the firm is investigating all relevant aspects of the deal and is committed to securing the best result possible for Audentes stockholders.
