Investor Lawsuit Against Acquisition of Entropic Communications, Inc. (ENTR) Announced by Shareholders Foundation

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that an investor, who currently holds shares of Entropic Communications, Inc. (ENTR), filed a lawsuit in an effort to stop the proposed takeover of Entropic Communications, Inc. by MaxLinear for a value of approximately $3.01 per share.

Investors who purchased shares of Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR) prior to February 3, 2015, and currently hold any of those NASDAQ:ENTR shares, have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc. at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1 (858) 779 - 1554.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:ENTR stockholders by agreeing to sell Entropic Communications, Inc. too cheaply via an unfair process to MaxLinear, Inc.

On February 3, 2015 MaxLinear, Inc. and Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR) announced that they have signed an agreement for MaxLinear, Inc to acquire Entropic Communications, Inc. Under the terms of the proposed transaction Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR) shareholders will receive $1.20 per share in cash and 0.22 shares of MaxLinear, Inc. common stock for each Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR) common share outstanding. Based on MaxLinear's closing stock price on February 2, 2015, the merger consideration is valued at approximately $3.01 per Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR) share.

However, the plaintiff claims that the proposed consideration NASDAQ:ENTR shareholders will receive is grossly inadequate and undervalues Entropic Communications, Inc. Indeed, at least one analyst has set the high target price for NASDAQ:ENTR shares at $5.00 per share and NASDAQ:ENTR shares traded in early 2014 as high as $4.74 per share. In addition, the plaintiff claims that the process is also unfair to NASDAQ:ENTR stockholders.

Those who currently hold Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR) shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc. at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1 (858) 779 - 1554.
