Multiband Corporation (NASDAQ:MBND): Current price $3.20
Former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor are investigating the sale of Multiband Corporation to Goodman Networks at the benefit of shareholders. Through the terms of the proposed transaction valued at roughly $116 million, Multiband shareholders will receive $3.25 in cash for each share of Multiband stock they own, which falls short of at least one analyst’s estimate of $4 per share. The inquiry will focus upon whether Multiband shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed acquisition, if the transaction undervalues Multiband stock, and also whether Multiband’s board endeavored to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders before agreeing to the deal. According to Yahoo! Finance, one analyst has calculated that the correct inherent value of Multiband stock might indeed be as high as $4 per share.
