Law Firm Brower Piven Announces Investigation of Omthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Proposed Buyout

STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Omthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Omthera" or the "Company") (NAS: OMTH) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Omthera relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by AstraZeneca PLC. The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the board of directors of Omthera breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.

In addition to the cash payment, each Omthera stockholder will receive one Contingent Value Right of up to approximately $4.70 for each share they own, equating to $120 million, if specified milestones related to Epanova are achieved, or if a milestone related to global net sales is achieved.
