Is the Proposed Acquisition Fair for OM Group Shareholders?

On June 17, 2015, an OM Group investor filed a class action lawsuit in Delaware Chancery Court challenging the company's proposed acquisition.  The complaint alleges that the deal was made through an unfair negotiation process and that it improperly buys shareholders out of a company that is headed for success.  Additionally, the complaint alleges that OM Group and its directors breached their fiduciary duties of loyalty, good faith, due care, and full disclosure to the class by not considering other buyers before agreeing to the buyout. 

Apollo is attempting to acquire OM Group for the $34.00 merger consideration that is significantly below a $49.00 target price set by an APB Financial Group analyst in March 2015.  Financial analysts at BB&T Capital Markets and Northcoast Research have also appraised OM Group stock above the merger consideration, with target prices of $37.00 and $35.00, respectively. Moreover, the merger consideration's 17.9% premium, based on OM Group's closing price on May 1, 2015, is well below the average one month premium of 27% for comparable transactions within the past five years.  The class action suit is thus seeking class certification and is requesting the court to block the deal.
