The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Pike Corp breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:PIKE investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On August 4, 2014, Pike Corp (NYSE:PIKE) announced that it has signed a merger agreement under which investment firm Court Square Capital Partners in partnership with J.
