WeissLaw is investigating whether MCRN's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the merger agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $19.00 per MCRN share. In addition, the Company recently reported operating earnings of $25.9 million in the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 11.6% year-over-year.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether the merger enhances MCRN shareholder value. Specifically, WeissLaw is concerned whether MCRN's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed merger, whether the proposed merger undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed merger 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.
