The definitive acquisition agreement involves an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $56 million. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2011.
“We are investigating the fairness of the proposed transaction to Icagen shareholders, whether the shareholders are being underpaid for their stock, and whether Icagen’s Board of Directors acted in the shareholders’ best interests,” said shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe. In particular, the acquisition price represents nearly a 23% discount to Icagen’s closing price the day before the acquisition announcement. In addition, at least one analyst has set a target price of $8.00 per share for Icagen/ICGN shares. “Based on these and other factors, our anticipated lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders,” said Willie Briscoe.
