Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Acme Packet, Inc.

Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Acme’s stockholders will receive $29.25 in cash for each share of Acme’s common stock they own, while according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one financial analyst has set a price target of $30 for Acme.
The investigation focuses on whether Acme’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to conduct an adequate and fair sales process prior to agreeing to this proposed transaction, whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of Acme’s shareholders.
