ATMEL CORPORATION, INC. SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Kendall Law Group Questions Whether Proposed Sale to Dialog Semiconductor is in Best Interest of Atmel Shareholders

DALLAS--()--Kendall Law Group, led by former federal judge Joe Kendall, is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Atmel Corporation, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATML) in connection with the proposed acquisition of Atmel by Dialog Semiconductor. According to the terms of the agreement, Atmel shareholders will receive $4.65 in cash and 0.112 of a Dialog American Depositary Share for each Atmel share held at the closing of the transaction. The consideration to Atmel shareholders is approximately $10.42 per Atmel share based on Dialog’s closing stock price as of September 18, 2015, significantly lower than at least one Wall Street analyst’s target price of $12.

The national securities firm’s investigation seeks to determine whether Atmel and its Board breached their fiduciary duties by engaging in self-dealing, failing to maximize the value of the Company, failing to disclose all material benefits and costs, and failing to obtain the best possible consideration for the Atmel shareholders. The Kendall Law Group is investigating whether Atmel shareholders have the option to file a lawsuit to ensure the board of directors obtains the best possible price for shareholders and the disclosure of material information.
