BUYOUT OF NATIONAL FINANCIAL - LAW FIRM SEEKS HIGHER PRICE FOR SHAREHOLDERS
April 15, 2013
New York, New York
Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights firm, announces that it has been retained to investigate the acquisition of National Financial Partners Corp (NYSE: NFP) on behalf of shareholders. National Financial Partners Corp. announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, a private equity investment firm, under which NFP shareholders will receive $25.35 in cash for each share of NFP common stock they own.
The investigation concerns whether the board of directors of NFP breached their fiduciary duties by not engaging in a full and fair auction for the company to obtain the highest price possible for shareholders, while, at the same time, negotiating potential pay packages, benefits and equity stakes for themselves. Indeed, NFP has approx. $2.25 per share of cash on its books, which will go to the buyer of the company. Therefore, the actual purchase price is closer to $23.10 per share, which is well below analysts' valuation.
