Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of DARA BioSciences, Inc. (NASDAQ CM: DARA) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of DARA BioSciences, Inc. (“DARA” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ CM: DARA) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Midatech Pharma PLC (“Midatech”).

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of DARA will receive (i) 0.272 Ordinary Shares of Midatech, subject to certain adjustments described in more detail below, and (ii) one Contingent Value Right ("CVR").  All Midatech Ordinary Shares will be delivered to the holders of DARA Common Stock in the form of American Depositary Receipts ("ADRs").  Based on the current price of Midatech, each DARA share will be converted into ADRs with a value equivalent to approximately $1.20 per DARA share.  The ADRs will be listed on NASDAQ. Current DARA stockholders are expected to own approximately 16% of Midatech after the closing of the transaction.

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