Levi & Korsinsky, LLP has commenced an investigation into the fairness of the sale of USG Corporation (NYSE: USG) to Gebr. Knauf KG. Under the terms of the transaction, USG shareholders will receive $44 per share, consisting of $43.50 per share in cash and a $0.50 per share special dividend paid upon shareholder approval of the transaction.
The investigation concerns whether the Board of USG breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Gebr. Knauf KG is underpaying for USG shares, thus unlawfully harming USG shareholders. Shareholders representing a combined 31% of the Company’s outstanding shares have already agreed to tender their shares.
