MANAGEMENT BUYOUT - LAW FIRM SEEKS MORE MONEY FOR SHAREHOLDERS
October 3, 2012
New York, New York -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities law firm, announces that it is investigating the acquisition of Feihe International, Inc. ( NYSE : ADY ) by is Chairman and CEO. Feihe announced that its Board of Directors has received a proposal from Mr. You-Bin Leng ("Mr. Leng"), the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and an affiliate of Morgan Stanley Private Equity Asia to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of the Company not currently owned by Mr. Leng (and possibly other rollover shareholders) in a going private transaction for $7.40 per share of common stock in cash. Mr. Leng currently owns 45.34% of the Company's common stock.
The investigation concerns whether Mr. Leng and the board of directors of Feihe breached their fiduciary duties in allowing Mr. Leng to acquire the company for an unfairly low price. Indeed, the company's book value alone is $9.54 per share, and analysts have projected the company's true inherent value is in excess of $9 per share.

Well, I contacted Tripp Levy. To me, paying a price Below Value, especially below Net Tangible Book Value (which are both the same in this case), should never be allowed except in unusual situations, and then only when a judge agrees with a legally-required valuation assessment by an unaffiliated accounting or investment firm that the offered price is the best that can reasonably be expected to be obtained.
