SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Brodsky & Smith Announces an Investigation of The Valens Company Inc. (Nasdaq – VLNS)

BALA CYNWYD – August 30, 2022 /Globe Newswire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of The Valens Company Inc. (“Valens” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq – VLNS) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the Company’s agreement to be acquired by SNDL Inc. (“SNDL”) (Nasdaq – SNDL). Under the terms of the Agreement, Valens’ shareholders will receive, for each Valens Share, 0.3334 of a common share of SNDL. Based on the August 19, 2022 close of the SNDL shares, the consideration represents an implied value of $1.26 per Valens Share, for total consideration of approximately $138 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Valens Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process, and whether SNDL is paying too little for the Company. For example, the deal consideration is below the 52-week high of $3.44 for the Company’s stock.
