TOWERS WATSON SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Towers Watson & Co. (TW) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Willis Group Holdings PLC



NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Towers Watson & Co. ("TW" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TW) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Willis Group Holdings PLC for approximately $18 billion.  

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP

In addition to $4.87 in cash, the Company's stockholders will only receive 2.6490 Willis shares for each TW share common stock they own. The total deal consideration per share would be approximately $125.13 per share of TW. However, at least one analyst has set a price target of $157.00 per share of TW. Moreover, TW's recent trading history show that the Company has traded and does trade at higher values than the deal consideration.

The investigation focuses on whether TW's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company's stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of TW's shareholders.
