Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Baker Hughes Incorporated (NYSE: BHI) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Baker Hughes Incorporated (“Baker Hughes” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BHI) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Halliburton Company (“Halliburton”) (NYSE: HAL), in a transaction valued at approximately $34.6 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Baker Hughes will receive 1.12 shares of Halliburton common stock and $19.00 in cash for each share of Baker Hughes common stock.  Based on Halliburton’s closing stock price on November 14, 2014, Baker Hughes shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $80.69 per share.

The investigation concerns whether Baker Hughes’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Baker Hughes’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Halliburton.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Baker Hughes stock at $96.00 per share.

If you own the common stock of Baker Hughes and purchased your shares before November 17, 2014, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
