INTELIQUENT (IQNT) SHAREHOLDER ALERT - Andrews & Springer LLC Is Seeking More Cash for Shareholders of Inteliquent, Inc.
(Wilmington, DE) 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 Inteliquent, Inc. (NASDAQGS: IQNT) (“Inteliquent” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to affiliates of private equity firm GTCR, LLC (“GTCR”). On November 2, 2016, the two parties announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which GTCR will acquire Inteliquent in a merger in a deal worth $800 million. As a result of the merger, Inteliquent shareholders are only anticipated to receive $23.00 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Inteliquent.
Andrews & Springer’s investigation so far has revealed that the consideration Inteliquent shareholders are expected to receive is inadequate. The consideration is less than the $24.00 per share price target set by BWS Financial in August 2016, just three months before the merger was announced. While the Company claims that shareholders will receive a premium for their shares, the $23.00 per share consideration is still below Inteliquent’s 52-week high of $23.20. Our investigation has also revealed that the process leading up to the announcement of the merger appears to have significant conflicts of interest thus making the process and consideration unfair.
