Law Firm Brower Piven Announces Class Action Lawsuit in Connection With Claims of Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by the Board of Cornerstone Therapeutics, Inc. in Connection With a Proposed Buyout -- CRTX

STEVENSON, Md., Sept. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the Delaware Chancery Court on behalf of all common stockholders of Cornerstone Therapeutics, Inc. ("Cornerstone" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CRTX).

According to the complaint, under the terms of the proposed transaction, Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. (collectively, with its affiliates, "Chiesi") would acquire the outstanding shares of Cornerstone for $9.50 per share in cash. The complaint alleges that the proposed consideration agreed to by the defendants is unfair, and the proposed transaction is the result of an unfair process that fails to maximize stockholder value and is designed with unreasonable deal protection devices that serve to prevent other bidders from making a successful competing offer for the Company.
