SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Announces Class Action Lawsuit in Connection With Claims of Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by the Board of Directors of Zygo Corporation in Connection With the Sale of the Company -- ZIGO

STEVENSON, Md., April 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the Delaware Court of Chancery on behalf of all common stockholders of Zygo Corporation ("Zygo" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:ZIGO) asserting claims that the members of the Company's board of directors have breached fiduciary duties they owe to Zygo shareholders.

Zygo recently announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by AMETEK, Inc. ("AMETEK"). According to the complaint, under the terms of the proposed transaction, Zygo shareholders will receive $19.25 per share in cash for each share of Zygo they own. The claims asserted in the lawsuit concern whether the Company's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether AMETEK is underpaying for Zygo shares.
