Business Wire


Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Trius Therapeutics, Inc. (“Trius” or the “Company”) (TSRX) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The transaction is valued at approximately $818 million, and under the terms of the agreement shareholders will receive $13.50 in cash and one Contingent Value Right of up to $2.00 per share of Trius owned.

This investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors of Trius breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the proposed transaction, and whether the Company has disclosed all material information to shareholders about the transaction. The Company has seen substantial recent growth. Its share price has skyrocketed from $4.45 on December 10, 2012 to $12.16 on July 22, 2013. Further, at least one analyst has set a target price for the Company’s stock at $20.00 per share.
