Levi & Korsinsky, LLP has commenced an investigation into the fairness of the merger between of Nanometrics Incorporated (“Nanometrics” or the “Company”) (NASDAQGS: NANO) and Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (“Rudolph”) (NYSE: RTEC). When Nanometrics and Rudolph merge, current Nanometrics stockholders will own approximately 50% and current Rudolph stockholders will own approximately 50% of the combined company. Under the terms of the deal, shareholders of Rudolph will receive 0.8042 shares of Nanometrics common stock for each Rudolph share.
The Nanometrics merger investigation concerns whether the Board of Nanometrics breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether the merger with Rudolph undervalues Nanometrics shares, thus unlawfully harming Nanometrics shareholders.
