WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of StanCorp Financial Group, (“StanCorp” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company (“Meiji Yasuda”). On July 23, 2015, StanCorp and Meiji Yasuda announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Meiji Yasuda will acquire StanCorp in a merger worth $5.0 billion. As a result of the merger, StanCorp shareholders are only anticipated to receive $115.00 per share in cash in exchange for each share of StanCorp.
Andrews & Springer’s investigation focuses on the inadequate consideration and sales process leading up to the deal. The process leading up to the announcement of the merger appears to have significant conflicts of interest, thus making the process and consideration unfair. StanCorp’s senior leadership is expected to remain in place and continue their employment after the consummation of the merger. Additionally, StanCorp’s management will receive millions of dollars in change-of-control payments for currently unvested stock options, performance units and restricted shares upon consummation of the merger.
