Faruqi & Faurqi Law Investigation: Audience Inc.
INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Audience, Inc. Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Knowles Corporation
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 Audience, Inc. (“Audience” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: ADNC) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Knowles Corporation (NYSE: KN) for approximately $85 million in a cash and stock deal. The Company’s stockholders will only receive $2.50 in cash and $2.50 in Knowles common stock for each share of Audience common stock they own for a total of $5.00 per share. At least one analyst has set a price target of $10.00 for Audience shares, and the Company’s stock has traded as high as $13.11 over the past year.
The investigation focuses on whether Audience’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 Audience’s shareholders.
