08/10/2012| 06:05pm US/Eastern
Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm
with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible
breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of
Directors of Robbins & Myers, Inc. (NYSE: RBN) arising from its
agreement for Robbins & Myers to be acquired by National Oilwell Varco
Inc. in a transaction valued at approximately $2.54 billion. Under the
terms of the agreement, Robbins & Myers's shareholders will receive $60
in cash for each share of Robbins & Myers stock at closing.
Weiss & Lurie is investigating whether Robbins & Myers's Board acted in
the best interests of shareholders in approving this deal. Multiple
analysts have set a target price for Robbins & Myers stock above $60,
with a high target set at $72. Moreover, Robbins & Myers's Board has
agreed to coercive deal protection devices including a "no shop"
provision and a provision that requires Robbins & Myers to pay National
Oilwell's expenses, up to $50 million, if Robbins & Myers's shareholders
fail to approve the Merger Agreement. If you own Robbins & Myers shares
and would like more information about your rights as a shareholder or

individuals and obtained important corporate governance in these cases.
