Investors who purchased shares of Columbia Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:CPPL) and currently hold any of those NYSE:CPPL shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1(858) 779 – 1554.
The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Columbia Pipeline Partners LP breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:CPPL investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On September 26, 2016, Columbia Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:CPPL) announced that it is in receipt of an offer from Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc. to acquire, for cash, all of the 53,843,466 outstanding common units of the Partnership, at a price of US$15.75 per common unit. Columbia is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TransCanada Corporation (TSX:TRP) (NYSE:TRP).
However, given that at least one analyst has set the high price for NYSE:CPPL shares at $22.00 per share and given that NYSE:CPPL shares reached as high as $28.02 per share in April 2015, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSE:CPPL stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Columbia Pipeline Partners Board of Directors undertook an adequate sales process, adequately shopped the company before entering into the transaction, maximized shareholder value by negotiating the best price, and acted in the shareholders’ best interests in connection with the proposed sale.
Shares of Columbia Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:CPPL) closed on October 12, 2016 at $16.22 per share.
Those who are current investors in NYSE:CPPL shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
