SAN DIEGO, March 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP (J&W) is investigating potential claims against Nimble Storage, TransDigm Group, Global Eagle Entertainment and, Patriot National as detailed below:

Nimble Storage, Inc.

Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Nimble Storage, Inc. (NMBL) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company.

On March 7, 2017, Nimble announced it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Hewlett Packard. Under the terms of the agreement, Hewlett Packard will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Nimble common stock for $ 12.50 per share in cash.

The investigation concerns whether the Nimble Bay board failed to satisfy their duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for Nimble's shares of common stock.

If you are a shareholder of Nimble and believe the proposed buyout price is too low and you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact Jim Baker (jimb@johnsonandweaver.com) at 619-814-4471.
