Clayton Williams Energy, Inc. (CWEI)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Clayton Williams Energy, Inc. (CWEI) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Noble Energy Inc.

Nadeem Faruqi, founding partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Clayton Williams Energy, Inc. (“Clayton Williams” or the “Company”) (NYSE:CWEI) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Noble Energy Inc. for approximately $2.7 billion. 

The Company’s stockholders will only receive $34.75 in cash and 2.7874 shares of Nobel Energy common stock in exchange for each share of Company common stock they own, or approximately $138.96 per share. However, the offer is below the 52-week high price of $149.78 per share.

The investigation focuses on whether Clayton Williams’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 Clayton Williams’s shareholders.
