NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. (“Kodiak” or “the Company”) (NYSE: KOG) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Whiting Petroleum Corporation.

Under the terms of the transaction, Kodiak shareholders will receive 0.177 of a share of Whiting stock for each share of Kodiak common stock they own, representing a value of $13.90 per share based on the closing price of Whiting common stock on July 11, 2014. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Kodiak breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Whiting Petroleum Corporation is underpaying for Kodiak shares. In particular, shares of Kodiak traded above the offer price the day before the merger was announced, and at least one analyst set a price target of $19.00 per share.
