According to the lawsuit, on June 9, 2014, Hittite and Analog Devices, Inc. ("Analog") (Nasdaq:ADI) announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Analog would acquire Hittite in a merger valued at roughly $2 billion. As a result of the merger, Hittite shareholders are only anticipated to receive to receive $78 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Hittite they own.

The complaint, which was filed on June 12, 2014, discusses Hittite's promising future as highlighted by the Company's President and CEO Richard Hess. The complaint further alleges, however, "if the Proposed Transaction closes, Hittite investors such as Plaintiff will be denied the growth opportunity the Company has been touting."

The markets today have expressed concern over the merger consideration. As of today, Hittite closed at $78.02 per share, $.02 cents above the $78 per share merger consideration.
