NEW YORK, June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gardy & Notis, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the proposed acquisition of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. ("Stewart") (NYSE: MSO) by Sequential Brands Group, Inc. ("Sequential") in a transaction valued at approximately $353 million.
Stewart shareholders stand to gain $6.15 per share in cash or stock valued at $6.15 per share in a newly formed company. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Martha Stewart stock at $7.18 per share. As a result of the proposed transaction, Martha Stewart will personally become a "significant shareholder" of the newly formed company and will obtain a highly profitable employment agreement in connection with the proposed transaction.
The investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors of Stewart breached their fiduciary duty to stockholders by failing to adequately shop Stewart before agreeing to enter into this transaction, attaching conditions to the merger than make it more difficult for competing offers to emerge, providing Martha Stewart with benefits not provided to other stockholders, and whether Sequential is underpaying for Stewart shares.
