Venoco, Inc. : Law Firm Brower Piven Announces Investigation of Venoco, Inc.
01/19/2012| 04:35pm US/Eastern
The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced
an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current
shareholders of Venoco, Inc. ("Venoco") (NYSE: VQ) and other violations
of state law by the board of directors of Venoco relating to the
proposed acquisition of the company by its Chairman and CEO Timothy
Marquez through a wholly owned entity, Denver Parent Corporation ("Mr.
Marquez"). The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other
things, whether the board breached their fiduciary duties by failing to
maximize shareholder value.
On January 16, 2012, Venoco announced that they had entered into a
definitive agreement with Mr. Marquez, through a wholly owned entity,
Denver Parent Corporation. According to the announcement, Venoco
shareholders - excluding Mr. Marquez and his affiliated entities - will
receive $12.50 per share in cash upon completion of the transaction.
However, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a
high price target of $20.00 per share.
