WeissLaw LLP: Towers Watson & Co. Under Legal Investigation



NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The fairness of the proposed sale of Towers Watson & Co. ("TW," or the "Company") to Willis Group Holdings PLC ("WSH") is being investigated by WeissLaw LLP, a national class action, shareholder rights law firm, for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of TW.  On June 30, 2015, the Company announced a definitive merger agreement for WSH to acquire TW in a transaction valued at $8.7 billion.  Under the terms of the agreement, TW shareholder will receive a one-time cash dividend of $4.87 and 2.6490 WSH shares for each share of TW they own, implying a per share value of approximately $125 based on Monday's closing price of WSH shares. 

WeissLaw is investigating whether TW's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement.  Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $157 per share, or $32.00 above the offer price.  Additionally, just a day prior to the announcement, on June 29, TW shares traded for $137.98, or approximately $13 above the offer price. 

Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating the Board's decision to sell TW and whether TW shareholders will obtain their fair and proportionate share of the Company's continued success and future growth prospects.  If you own TW shares and would like more information about your rights or our investigation, or if you have information to share with us, please contact Joshua Rubin by telephone at (888) 593-4771 or by email at stockinfo@weisslawllp.com.  

WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties.  We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.  If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at stockinfo@weisslawllp.com or fill out the form on our website, http://www.weisslawllp.com/contact/report_fraud/.
