SHAREHOLDER NOTICE:  Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation of USG Corporation – USG

 

BALA CYNWYD, June 13, 2018 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of USG Corporation (“USG” or “the Company”) (NYSE – USG-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Gebr Knauf KG (“Gebr”).

Under the terms of the transaction, USG shareholders will receive only $44.00, consisting of $43.50 paid in cash and $0.50 in a special dividend, for each share of USG stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of  USG breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Gebr is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and may not be in the USG shareholders best interests. For example, USG had called the initial takeover offer, of $42.00 per share, wholly inadequate, opportunistic given the company’s improving fortunes under a turnaround plan.

If you own shares of USG stock and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of  the investigation, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
