Under the terms of the proposed transaction, American Greetings shareholders would receive $17.18 per share of American Greetings stock they own. The proposed transaction has a total approximate value of $532 million. The investigation concerns, among other things, whether the consideration to be paid to American Greetings shareholders is unfair, inadequate, and substantially below the fair or inherent value of American Greetings stock. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for American Greetings stock at $30.00 per share.
