Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of American Farmland Company (NYSE MKT: AFCO) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of American Farmland Company (“AFCO” or the “Company”) (NYSE MKT: AFCO) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Farmland Partners Inc. (“FPI”) (NYSE: FPI).

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of AFCO will receive 0.7417 shares of FPI for each share of AFCO they own.  Based on FPI’s closing stock price on September 9, 2016, AFCO shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $8.23 per share.

The investigation concerns whether AFCO’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for AFCO shareholders before entering into an agreement with FPI.
