NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating the potential sale of Omega Protein Corp. (NYSE: OME) ("Omega" or the "Company") on behalf of its shareholders. Omega announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Cooke Inc. in a cash deal valued at approximately $500 million. Cooke will acquire Omega for $22.00 per share.
Our investigation has determined that the offer price of only $22.00 per share, unfairly under-values the true going forward inherent value of Omega and that shareholders may not be receiving the maximum value for their shares. Indeed, the stock hit a high of $26.99 per share within the past year. The investigation further seeks to determine whether Omega senior management is entering into this deal for their own self-interests to the detriment of the Company's shareholders.
If you are a shareholder of Omega and would like additional information as to how the proposed acquisition may affect your rights as a shareholder, and how you may be eligible to obtain a higher price for your shares, please contact us at no cost at:
