SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Commences An Investigation Into The Proposed Sale Of The Chubb Corporation And Encourages Investors To Contact The Firm For Additional Information

STEVENSON, Md., July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of The Chubb Corporation ("Chubb" or the "Company") (NYSE: CB) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by ACE Ltd. for approximately $28.3 billion.

Under the terms of the transaction, Chubb shareholders are anticipated to receive $62.93 in cash and 0.6019 share of ACE stock for each share they own for each share of Company common stock they own.  The transaction may undervalue Chubb and may result in a substantial loss for many shareholders.   For example, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for Chubb stock at $103.00 per share and is expected to continue climbing.

The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company's Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company's shares of common stock.

If you currently own common stock of Chubb and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, or you would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted by Brower Piven, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentinvestigations.html.  You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.
