Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Apollo Education Group, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: APOL) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Apollo Education Group, Inc. (“Apollo Education” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: APOL) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by a consortium of investors including The Vistria Group, LLC, funds affiliated with Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO), and Najafi Companies (collectively, the “Consortium”), in a transaction valued at approximately $1.1 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Apollo Education will receive $9.50 in cash for each share of Apollo Education common stock.

The investigation concerns whether Apollo Education board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Apollo Education shareholders before entering into an agreement with the Consortium.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Apollo Education stock at $10.00 per share.
