Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Heartland Payment Systems, Inc. (NYSE: HPY) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Heartland Payment Systems, Inc.

(“Global Payments”) (NYSE: GPN), in a transaction valued at approximately $4.3 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Heartland will receive 0.6687 shares of Global Payments stock and $53.28 in cash for each share of Heartland.  Based on Global Payments’ closing stock price on December 15, 2015, Heartland shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $101.04 per share.
