WeissLaw is investigating whether Highpower International's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $12.86, or nearly three times the per share offer price. Additionally, HPJ announced double-digit growth in its unaudited first quarter of 2019 financial reports. It announced a 16.7% annual increase in net sales, a 16.8% annual increase in Lithium business net sales, and a remarkable 21.8% annual increase in gross margin.
WeissLaw is investigating whether Highpower International'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.
WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties. We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases. If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
