El Paso Corporation : Finkelstein Thompson LLP Announces Investigation of El Paso Corp.
10/17/2011| 01:05pm US/Eastern
The law firm of Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential
claims on behalf of shareholders of El Paso Corp. ("El Paso" or the
"Company") (NYSE: EP), concerning the proposed acquisition of the
Company by Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI). Under the terms of the
transaction, El Paso shareholders would receive $26.87 per share, in a
deal worth approximately $21.1 billion.
El Paso has seen dramatic growth in the past several years, with its
share price rising from $6.25 in March 2009 to as high as $20.55 in July
2011. Indeed, at least one analyst has set a target price of $28.00 for
the Company's stock.
The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the
consideration to El Paso's shareholders, the process by which the
Company's Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential
conflicts of interests among El Paso's Board members.
