WILMINGTON, Del., July 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (“Speedway” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to Sonic Financial Corporation (“Sonic”), an entity owned by O. Bruton Smith, who currently owns and controls over 70% of Speedway’s stock. On July 24, 2019, the two parties announced that they reached an agreement in principle pursuant to which Bruton Smith will acquire Speedway in a going private merger via a tender offer. As a result of the merger, Speedway shareholders are only anticipated to receive $19.75 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Speedway.
Andrews & Springer is investigating whether Speedway’s directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the company. Our investigation is also looking into whether Speedway’s directors were conflicted and acted in their own self-interest when approving the merger thus making the process and consideration unfair.
