    By PHILIP A. JANQUART

    (CN) - Top executives at Weight Watchers International Inc. inflated stock prices before dumping their personal holdings in the company, shareholders claim in federal court.
    Artal Group S.A., a private equity company based in Luxembourg, is the controlling shareholder of Weight Watchers, according to the complaint. Artal, which acquired it from H.J. Heinz Company in 1999, owns 52 percent of the company's 55 million outstanding shares of common stock. Raymond Debbane is the company's CEO and also serves as Weight Watchers' chairman of the board.
    Lead plaintiff May Al Najjar sued Weight Watchers, Former CEO David Kirchhoff, current President and CEO James Chambers, former CFO Ann Sardini and current CFO Nicholas Hotchkin, along with Artal and Debbane, alleging the companies orchestrated a $720 million "modified Dutch auction" that allowed insiders to sell their personal stock at $82 per share.
    "Kirchhoff received gross proceeds on shares sold of approximately $6.5 million and Sardini received gross proceeds on shares sold of approximately $4.4 million," according to the complaint.
    According to the complaint, Kirchhoff "obliquely attributed the disappointed results to 'execution issues,'" causing stocks to plunge from $76.01 to $62.29 per share.

  • Tripp Levy PLLC is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Schawk Inc. (“Schawk” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SGK), concerning the proposed acquisition of Schawk by Matthews International Corporation (“Matthews”) (NASDAQ: MATW). Schawk shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact us toll free at 1-877-772-3975 or visit our website at tripplevy.

    The investigation concerns whether the Schawk directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately pursue alternatives to the acquisition and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Schawk stockholders will receive $11.80 in cash and 0.20582 shares of Matthews’ common stock for each share of Schawk common stock they own, valuing the transaction at approximately $577 million. Based on Matthews’ closing price of $39.84 per share on March 14, 2014, the stock portion of the consideration is valued at $8.20 per share.

Additionally, certain members of the Schawk family, who collectively own approximately 61% of the common stock of Schawk, have agreed to vote in favor of the proposed merger.
