WeissLaw is investigating whether WRD's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $45.00 per WRD share.

Additionally, according to the acquisition announcement, the transaction will expand CHK's growth platform, accelerate its strategic and financial goals, and reduce its debt.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether WRD's Board acted in the best interests of WRD's public shareholders to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. If you own WRD shares and would like more information about your rights or our investigation, or if you have information to share with us, please contact Joshua Rubin by telephone at (888) 593-4771 or by email at stockinfo@weisslawllp.com.
