WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of NxStage Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTM) (“NXTM” or the “Company”) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Fresenius Medical Care (“Fresenius”). On August 7, 2017, the Company announced a definitive agreement for Fresenius to acquire all outstanding shares of NXTM in a transaction valued at approximately $2.0 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company’s shareholders will receive $30.00 in cash for each NXTM share they own.
WeissLaw is investigating whether NXTM’s Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $33.00 per share. Additionally, NXTM shares traded at $30.80, or $0.80 above the offer price, as recently as May. Further, the Company recently announced positive financial results. In a separate press release issued on August 7, 2017, NXTM reported total revenue of $96.2 million, representing an annual increase of 4% or $4.0 million, when compared to the $92.2 million reported in the same period of the previous year.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether NXTM’s Board acted in the best interests of its public shareholders to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement.
