Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Alere Inc. (NYSE: ALR) Buyout Proposal

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Alere Inc. (“Alere” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ALR) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s receipt of a proposal to be acquired by the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer, Ron Zwanziger, (“Zwanziger”), in a transaction valued at approximately $3.82 billion.

Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of Alere would receive $46.00 in cash for each share of Alere they own.

The investigation concerns the Alere’s board of directors’ process for consideration of the proposed transaction, whether the Company is acting in its shareholders’ best interests and whether the proposed consideration to be paid to Alere’s shareholders would be fair and adequate.
