BALA CYNWYD, July 7, 2017 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of West Marine, Inc. (“West Marine” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq- WMAR-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Monomoy Capital Partners (“Monomoy”).

Under the terms of the transaction, West Marine shareholders will receive only $12.97 in cash for each share of West Marine stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of  West Marine breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Monomoy is underpaying for the Company.

For example, shares of West Marine stock have traded at $14.16 per share and Monomoy is paying only just over 1.5 times net current asset value. However, at 2 times net current asset value, West Maine shareholders would receive approximately $17.00 per share.
