WeissLaw LLP Investigates Caribou Coffee Company Acquisition

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Caribou Coffee Company ("Caribou" or the "Company") (NAS: CBOU) arising from its agreement for Caribou to be acquired by the Joh. A. Benckiser Group ("Benckiser"), in a transaction valued at approximately $340 million. Under the terms of the proposed transaction Caribou shareholders will receive $16.00 in cash for each Caribou share they own.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether Caribou's Board acted in the best interests of its public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize shareholder value for Caribou's public shareholders, prior to entering into the proposed transaction with Benckiser. Data compiled by Bloomberg shows that Caribou's revenue is forecast to rise 35 percent this year to $327 million. Additionally, at least one analyst set a price target for Caribou stock at $20.00 per share.
