Optimer Shareholder Alert: The Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale of Optimer to Cubist

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 Optimer Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Optimer") (NAS: OPTR) to Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed merger agreement, valued at approximately $801 million, Optimer shareholders will receive only $10.75 in cash and one Contingent Value Right for each share of Optimer stock owned, well below the 52-week high of $16.80.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, please contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 239-4568, via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com or Zach Groover at Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607 or via e-mail at shareholder@powerstaylor.com.
