ATHLON ENERGY INC. INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Athlon Energy Inc. (ATHL) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Encana Corporation (ECA)
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 Athlon Energy Inc. (“Athlon” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ATHL) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Encana Corporation (“Encana”) (ECA) for approximately $7.1 billion, approximately $1.15 billion of which will be the assumption of Athlon senior notes by Encana. The Company’s stockholders will receive $58.50 for each share of Athlon common stock they own. However, some analysts have set a price target for the Company as high as $65.00.
The investigation focuses on whether Athlon’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 Athlon’s shareholders.
