WeissLaw is investigating whether Genomic Health's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $77.00, or $5.00 above the per-share consideration. Additionally, according to the acquisition announcement, the deal will propel EXAS as a global leader in the industry, forming a "best-in-class commercial research, development and clinical organization, with enhanced scale and scope in cancer diagnostic." Moreover, the Company recently announced revenue of $114.1 million in the second quarter of 2019, representing an impressive 19.4% year-over-year growth when compared to the figures reported for the same quarter of the previous year.
Finally, upon completion of the transaction, EXAS shareholders will own 91% of the combined company, leaving a meager 9% for GHDX and its shareholders.
WeissLaw is investigating whether Genomic Health's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed acquisition, whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed.
