WILMINGTON, Del., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Furiex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Furiex" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FURX) relating to the sale of the Company to Forest Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: FRX) (the "Forest Labs"). On April 28, 2014, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Forest Labs will acquire Furiex in a merger valued at roughly $1.1 billion. Furiex shareholders could earn up to an additional $360 million pursuant to certain contingent value rights ("CVRs"). As a result of the merger, Furiex shareholders are only anticipated to receive $95 per share in cash for each share of Furiex.

Based on our investigation, the consideration that Furiex shareholders are expected to receive is significantly inadequate. Analysts at Yahoo! Finance have set a $140 per share price target for Furiex, which is approximately 47% more than what Furiex shareholders are expected to receive.
