SHAREHOLDER ALERT:  Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation  of  The Board of Directors of Ultratech, Inc. -UTEK


BALA CYNWYD, February 4, 2017 (PR Newswire) – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Ultratech, Inc. (“Ultratech” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq- UTEK-News) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Veeco Instruments Inc. (“Veeco”).

Under the terms of the transaction, Ultratech shareholders will receive only $21.75 in cash and 0.2675 of a share of Veeco common stock for each share of Ultratech stock they own. The transaction values Ultratech at only approximately $28.64 per share. The investigation concerns whether the Board of  Ultratech breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Veeco is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company as the price being paid is both below an analyst price target of $30.00 per share and below the premium that was paid in comparable transaction.
