Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Gardner Denver, Inc. (“Gardner” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GDI) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P (“KKR”), a private equity firm. Under the terms of the agreement, KKR will acquire Gardner for a cash purchase price of $76 per share, valuing the Company at approximately $3.9 billion.
The investigation concerns whether the Gardner Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to this transaction and whether the proposed $76 per share consideration adequately values Gardner shares. The offer price represents a 39% premium to the closing price of Gardner shares the day prior to the announcement. The median analyst price target for the Company’s stock is $80, and at least one analyst has a price target for the Company’s stock of $85 per share.
