SAN DIEGO, Aug. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Varian Medical Systems, Inc. ("Varian" or the "Company") (NYSE: VAR) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Siemens Healthineers AG ("Siemens").
On August 2, 2020, Varian announced that it had entered into a definitive merger agreement with Siemens. Under the terms of the deal, Varian shareholders will receive $177.50 for each share of Varian they own.
The investigation concerns whether the Varian board failed to satisfy its duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for Varian shares of common stock.
If you are a shareholder of Varian and believe the proposed buyout price is too low or you're interested in learning more about the investigation, please contact lead analyst Jim Baker (email@example.com) at 619-814-4471. If emailing, please include a phone number.
