Shach Law LLC is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Ancestry (“Ancestry” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACOM) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s efforts to sell Ancestry to Permira Funds (“Permira”). Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Company stockholders will receive $32.00 in cash for each share of Ancestry common stock they own. Although Ancestry’s public investors will be cashed out, Tim Sullivan, Ancestry’s President and Chief Executive Officer, and Howard Hochhauser, Ancestry’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, will maintain a majority of their equity stakes in the company as part of the transaction. Spectrum Equity will also remain an investor in the company.
The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the approval of the transaction by Ancestry’s board of directors; in particular, whether the Company undertook a fair process to maximize consideration for all shareholders of Ancestry.
If you own shares of Ancestry and would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters and have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights, please contact Shach Law LLC (Manny Shachmurove, Esquire) at (610) 896-7170, or by email at client.relations @ shachlaw.
