SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 25, 2019 / The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that a lawsuit was filed for investors who formerly held FairPoint Communications Inc (FRP) shares.

On December 05, 2016, Consolidated Communications Holdings, Inc. (CNSL) announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire FairPoint Communications Inc (FRP) in an all-stock merger transaction valued at approximately $1.5 billion, including debt.

Based on a closing price of $28.38 per NASDAQ: CNSL shares investors in NASDAQ: FRP shares were to receive a value of approximately $20.71 per share.

In February 2017, a lawsuit was filed in connection with the takeover of FairPoint Communications Inc by Consolidated Communications Holdings, Inc.

IN March 2017, the case was voluntarily dismissed.

Those who held shares of FairPoint Communications Inc (FRP) and received Consolidated Communications Holdings, Inc. (CNSL) shares as a result of the takeover might have still certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc.
