SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation of QEP Resources (NYSE – QEP)

BALA CYNWYD – December 21, 2020 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of QEP Resources (“QEP” or the “Company”) (NYSE – QEP) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the agreement to be acquired by Diamondback Energy, Inc. (“Diamondback”) (Nasdaq – FANG). Under the terms of the agreement, QEP stockholders will receive only 0.05 shares of Diamondback common stock for each share of QEP common stock, representing an implied value to each QEP stockholder of $2.29 per share based on the closing price of Diamondback common stock on December 18, 2020.

The investigation concerns whether the QEP Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process and whether Diamondback is paying too little for the Company. For example, the deal consideration is well below the 52-week high of $4.80 for QEP’s shares.
