ROCKWOOD INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Rockwood Holdings Inc. (ROC) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Albemarle Corporation

Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Rockwood Holdings Inc. (“Rockwood” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ROC) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) for approximately $6 billion.  The Company’s stockholders will receive $50.65 in cash and 0.4803 of Albemarle common stock for each share of Rockwood common stock they own, with a combined value of roughly $80.30 per share based on Albemarle’s closing price on Monday July 14, 2014. However, according to Yahoo Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target of $93.00 for the Company’s stock price.

The investigation focuses on whether Rockwood’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of Rockwood’s shareholders.
