Faruqi & Faruqi Investigation: GrafTech International Ltd.
INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of GrafTech International Ltd. (GTI) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Brookfield Asset Management, Inc.
Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of GrafTech International Ltd. (“GrafTech” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GTI) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Brookfield Asset Management, Inc. (“Brookfield”) for approximately $546 million. The Company’s stockholders will only receive $5.05 per share in cash for each share of GrafTech common stock they own. However, at least one analyst has set a price target of $6.00 for the Company’s stock.
The investigation focuses on whether GrafTech’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of GrafTech’s shareholders.
