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 Office Depot, Inc. (“Office Depot” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ODP) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS) for approximately $6.3 billion in a cash and stock transaction. The Company’s stockholders will receive $7.25 in cash and 0.2188 shares of Staples for each share of Office Depot common stock they own, which values the consideration for Office Depot Shareholders at $11.41 per share.
The investigation focuses on whether Office Depot’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 Office Depot’s shareholders.
