SHAREHOLDER ALERT:  Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. – PNK


BALA CYNWYD, December 18, 2017 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (“Pinnacle” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq- PNK-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Penn National Gaming, Inc. (“Penn National”).


Under the terms of the transaction, Pinnacle shareholders will receive only $20.00 in cash and 0.42 of a share of Penn National stock for each share of Pinnacle stock they own. The transaction values Pinnacle stock at only approximately $32.47 per share. The investigation concerns whether the Board of  Pinnacle breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Penn National is underpaying for the Company.
