The Somerset sale investigation centers on whether Somerset’s
shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the
buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Somerset’s stock, and
whether Somerset’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for
all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to shareholder
rights attorney Willie Briscoe, “due to the proposed sale price, the
significant holdings of Somerset and other factors, we believe this
transaction may undervalue Somerset’s stock. Our proposed lawsuit will
seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
