Finkelstein Thompson LLP Announces Investigation of Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc. Proposed Buyout

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The law firm of Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc. (NYS: HTSI) ("Harris Teeter" or "the Company"), concerning the Company's proposed acquisition by The Kroger Co. (NYS: KR) ("Kroger"). Under the terms of the merger agreement, Harris Teeter shareholders will receive $49.38 in cash for each share of Harris Teeter common stock they own, in a deal valued at approximately $2.4 billion. The price is a premium of 1.75% over the closing price of HTSI stock on July 8, 2013.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration to shareholders, the process by which Harris Teeter's Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interest among the Company's Board members.
