STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (NYSE: DPS) (“Dr. Pepper” or the “Company”) relating to the proposed buyout of Dr. Pepper by Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.
Under the terms of the agreement, Dr. Pepper shareholders are anticipated to receive $103.75 per share in a special cash dividend and retain 13% of the combined company. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company’s shares of common stock.
If you currently own common stock of Dr. Pepper and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, and you would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at email@example.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.
