Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Alliance Fiber Optic Products, Inc. (NASDAQ GM: AFOP) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Alliance Fiber Optic Products, Inc. (“AFOP” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GM: AFOP) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Corning Incorporated (“Corning”) (NYSE: GLW), in a transaction valued at approximately $305 million.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of AFOP will receive $18.50 in cash for each share of AFOP common stock.

The investigation concerns whether AFOP’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for AFOP shareholders before entering into an agreement with Corning.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for AFOP stock at $20.00 per share.
