SHAREHOLDER UPDATE:  Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation  of  The Board of Directors of Applied Micro Circuits Corporation -AMCC


BALA CYNWYD, November 21, 2016 (PR Newswire) – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (“Applied Micro” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq- AMCC-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (“MACOM”).

Under the terms of the transaction, Applied Micro shareholders will receive only approximately 0.1089 of a share of MACOM stock and $3.25 in cash for each share of Applied Micro stock they own. The transaction values Applied Micro at only approximately $8.36 per share. The investigation concerns whether the Board of  Applied Micro breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether MACOM is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in no real gain for many Applied Micro shareholders. For example, Applied Micro  stock traded at $8.03 per share on June 18, 2015 and an analyst has set an $11.00 per share price target for Applied Micro stock.

If you own shares of Applied Micro 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.
