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 Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc.

(“NextEra”) (NYSE: NEE) for approximately $2.6 billion in a cash and stock transaction. The Company’s stockholders will receive 0.2413 NextEra shares, and a one-time cash dividend payment of $0.50 for each share of Hawaiian Electric common stock they own.
The investigation focuses on whether Hawaiian Electric’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 Hawaiian Electric’s shareholders.
