WeissLaw LLP: Kindred Healthcare Inc. Merger May Not Be in the Best Interests of KND Shareholders

NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Kindred Healthcare Inc. ("KND" or the "Company") (NYSE: KND) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Humana Inc. ("HUM") (NYSE: HUM) and two private equity firms. Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, shareholders of KND will be entitled to receive $9.00 in cash for each KND share they own.

WeissLaw is investigating whether KND's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $11.00, or $2.00 above the offer price. Additionally, KND shares traded for $11.90, or nearly $3.00 above the offer price, as recently as July 3.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether KND shareholders will obtain their fair and proportionate share of the Company's continued success and future growth prospects. If you own KND shares and would like more information about your rights or our investigation, or if you have information to share with us, please contact Joshua Rubin by telephone at (888) 593-4771 or by email at stockinfo@weisslawllp.com.

We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.
