MILWAUKEE, Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP is investigating the Board of Directors of Copano Energy, L.L.C.

Copano shareholders will receive $40.91for each share in the transaction. The merger agreement unreasonably limits prospective bids for Copano by (i) prohibiting solicitation of any further bids, and (ii) imposing a termination penalty should Copano receive and accept a superior bid. Copano insiders, their affiliates and other majority shareholders own significant voting stock of Copano, and will receive millions of dollars as part of change of control arrangements, and therefore can unduly influence a sale of the Company not necessarily in the best interests of non-insider shareholders. In light of these facts, our investigation centers on the conduct of Copano's Board of Directors, who have unanimously approved the transaction, and whether they are (i) fulfilling their fiduciary duties to all shareholders, and (ii) obtaining a fair and reasonable price for Copano given its current financial condition and prospects.
