WeissLaw is investigating whether MRT's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement.  Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $12.00 per MRT share.  In addition, prior to the acquisition announcement, MRT shares traded for $11.85 per share, or nearly $2.00 above the per-share consideration. 

Moreover, the acquisition will expand and diversify OHI's portfolio to include new high quality assets types from MRT's portfolio that, according to OHI's CEO, which will "provide [OHI] with meaningful growth opportunities." 

Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether MRT's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed acquisition, whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed.
