Law Firm Kirby McInerney LLP Investigating Potential Claims on Behalf of Hot Topic, Inc. Shareholders
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Hot Topic, Inc. ("Hot Topic" or the "Company") (NAS: HOTT) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Sycamore Partners, a private equity firm. Under the terms of the agreement, Sycamore Partners will acquire Hot Topic for a cash purchase price of $14.00 per share, valuing the Company at approximately $600 million.
The investigation concerns whether the Hot Topic Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to this transaction and whether the proposed $14.00 per share consideration adequately values Hot Topic shares. The offer price represents a 30% premium to the closing price of Hot Topic shares the day prior to the announcement. At least one analyst has a price target for the Company's stock of $16.40 per share, 17% above the offer price.
