Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of TPC will receive $44.00 to $46.00 per share in cash for each share of TPC they own.

The investigation concerns the Company’s board of directors’ process for consideration of the proposed transaction, whether TPC is acting in its shareholders’ best interests and whether the proposed consideration to be paid to TPC’s shareholders would be fair and adequate.

Under the terms of the August 27, 2012 proposal, public shareholders of TPC would receive $40.00 per share in cash for each share of TPC owned. Further, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for TPC stock at $55.00 per share.
