Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Standard Microsystems Corporation (“Standard Microsystems” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SMSC) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct related to the sale of the Company to Microchip Technology Incorporated (NASDAQ: MCHP) in an all-cash deal valued at about $939 million. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Standard Microsystems’ stockholders will receive $37.00 in cash for each share of Standard Microsystems’ common stock they own.
