DST Alert: Johnson Fistel Investigates Proposed Sale of DST Systems, Inc.; Is $84 a Fair Price?

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of DST Systems, Inc. ("DST") (NYSE: DST) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (SS&C) (NASDAQ: SSNC). DST provides technology-based information processing and servicing solutions.

On January 11, 2018, DST announced that it had signed a definitive merger agreement with SS&C. Under the terms, SS&C will acquire DST for $84.00 per share in cash.
