BALA CYNWYD, PA / ACCESSWIRE / January 6, 2020/ Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of The Habitat Restaurants, Inc. ("Habitat" or "the Company") (HABT) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with proposed acquisition of the Company by YUM! Brands, Inc. ("YUM! Brands"). Under the terms of the agreement, Habitat shareholders will receive only $14.00 for each share of Habitat common stock owned.
The investigation concerns whether the Habitat Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process and whether YUM! Brands is underpaying for the Company. For example, the deal consideration is significantly below the Company's 52-week high of $14.16 as well as the average 12-month analyst price target of $15.50 (with the high target set at $17.00 per share).
