SAN DIEGO, Oct. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that an investor who currently holds shares of Active Network Inc (ACTV) filed a lawsuit to halt the proposed takeover of Active Network Inc by Vista Equity Partners for $14.50 per share.

Investors who purchased shares of Active Network Inc (ACTV) prior to Sept. 30, 2013 and currently hold any of those ACTV shares, have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc. at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1 (858) 779-1554.

On Sept. 30, 2013, Active Network Inc announced that it has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Vista Equity Partners in an all cash transaction valued at approximately $1.05 billion. Under the terms of the agreement Vista Equity Partners will commence a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Active Network's common stock for $14.50 per share in cash.

However, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties by agreeing to sell Active Network Inc. at an unfair price via an unfair process to Vista Equity Partners. The plaintiff claims that the offer is too low and undervalues the company. In addition, the plaintiff says that the defendants agreed to certain provisions in the merger agreement that deter alternative bids for Active Network Inc.

Those who currently are investors in Active Network Inc (ACTV) shares and purchased any of those ACTV shares prior to the announcement have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
