Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (“Krispy Kreme” or the “Company”) (NYSE: KKD) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by JAB Beech Inc. (“JAB”), in a transaction valued at approximately $1.35 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Krispy Kreme will receive $21.00 in cash for each share of Krispy Kreme common stock.
