Smithfield Foods Shareholder Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale to Shuanghui International
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Smithfield Foods, Inc. ("Smithfield") (NYS: SFD) to China's Shuanghui International Holdings Limited for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed deal valued at approximately $4.7 billion, Smithfield shareholders will only receive consideration of $34 for each share of Smithfield stock owned, well below at least one analyst's estimated value of $48.00 per share.

The Smithfield sale investigation centers on whether Smithfield's shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed deal, whether the transaction undervalues Smithfield's stock, and whether Smithfield's board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Notably, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst estimates that the true inherent value of Smithfield stock could be as high as $48.00 per share. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that "due to analyst estimates, the size of the deal, the lack of a significant premium and other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue Smithfield's stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders."
