Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Gentiva Health Services, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: GTIV) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Gentiva Health Services, Inc. (“Gentiva” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: GTIV) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Kindred Healthcare, Inc. (“Kindred”) (NYSE: KND), in a transaction valued at approximately $1.8 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Gentiva shareholders would receive $14.50 per share in cash and $5.00 of Kindred common stock (which equates to 0.257 shares of Kindred common stock based upon an agreed upon fixed exchange ratio), for each share of Gentiva they own.

The investigation concerns whether Gentiva’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Gentiva’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Kindred.  According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Gentiva stock at $20.00 per share.
