SHAREHOLDER UPDATE:  Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation  of  The Board of Directors of Harman International Industries, Incorporated – HAR


BALA CYNWYD, December 1, 2016 (PR Newswire) – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Harman International Industries Incorporated (“Harman” or “the Company”) (NYSE: HAR-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Samsung Electronics Co,. Ltd. (“Samsung”).

Under the terms of the transaction, Harman shareholders will receive only $112.00 in cash for each share of Harman stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Board of  Harman breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Samsung is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in a loss for many Harman shareholders. For example, Harman stock traded at $145.49 per share on April 23, 2015 and the amount being paid to Harman shareholders is below the premium paid in comparable transactions.

If you own shares of Harman 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.
