SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims on Behalf of Investors of Caribou Coffee Company, Inc.

NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Caribou Coffee Company, Inc. ("Caribou" or the "Company") (ISIN: US142042209) (CUSIP: 142042020) concerning the proposed acquisition of Caribou Coffee Company, Inc. by an investor group led by Joh. A. Benckiser Group in a transaction valued at approximately $340 million in cash.

The investigation concerns whether the Caribou directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Caribou shareholders will be entitled to receive $16.00 per share in cash for each share of Caribou common stock. However, the price to revenue multiple for the Company is below comparable transactions, and at least one analyst targeted the price at 19.00 per share.

Caribou shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
