STEVENSON, Md.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the Delaware Chancery Court on behalf of all public stockholders of Edgen Group Inc. (“Edgen” or the “Company”) (NYSE:EDG).
According to the complaint, under the terms of the proposed transaction, Sumitomo Corporation (“Sumitomo”) would acquire the outstanding common stock of Edgen for $12.00 per share in cash. The complaint alleges that proposed transaction is the product of a flawed process that resulted from a failure to maximize stockholder value and it deprives Edgen’s public stockholders of the ability to share in the Company’s future prospects. The complaint also alleges that, in approving the proposed transaction, the Company’s board of directors breached their fiduciary duties and that Sumitomo aided and abetted the board’s breaches of their duties.
