The Law Firm of Wohl & Fruchter Commences Investigation into the Acquisition of Ebix, Inc. by Goldman Sachs & Co.
Ebix is a leading provider of software and e-commerce services to the insurance industry.
On May 1, 2013, Ebix announced that, acting on the recommendation of a special committee, it had agreed to be acquired by an affiliate of Goldman Sachs for $20/share in cash. The acquisition price is a premium of less than 8% over the closing price of EBIX stock on April 30, 2013.
Moreover, Robin Raina, Ebix's Chairman and CEO, and the Rennes Foundation, a large existing shareholder, will continue to be meaningful equity investors in Ebix. Combined, Raina and the Rennes Foundation currently hold approximately 19% of EBIX shares. Both have entered into agreements to vote in favor of the transaction. Rolf Herter, a member of Ebix's Board of Directors, is also a director of the Rennes Foundation.
Wohl & Fruchter's investigation concerns the potential unfairness of the consideration being provided to Ebix shareholders, and whether approval of the merger was improperly motivated by conflicts of interest, including Raina's and the Rennes Foundation's ongoing post-acquisition equity interest in the company.
