Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Diamond Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: DMND) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Diamond Foods, Inc. (“Diamond Foods” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: DMND) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Snyder’s-Lance, Inc. (“Snyder’s-Lance”) (NASDAQ GS: LNCE), in a transaction valued at approximately $1.9 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Diamond Foods will receive $12.50 in cash and 0.775 shares of Snyder’s-Lance for each share of Diamond Foods they own.  Based on Snyder’s-Lance’s closing price on October 27, 2015, Diamond Foods shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $40.47 per share.

The investigation concerns whether Diamond Foods’ board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Diamond Foods’ shareholders before entering into an agreement with Snyder’s-Lance.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Diamond Foods stock at $41.00 per share.
