Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Linear Technology Corporation (NASDAQ GS: LLTC) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Linear Technology Corporation (“Linear Technology” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: LLTC) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Analog Devices, Inc. (“Analog Devices”) (NASDAQ GS: ADI), in a transaction valued at approximately $14.8 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Linear Technology will receive $46.00 per share in cash and 0.2321 of a share of Analog Devices common stock for each share of Linear Technology common stock they own.  Based on Analog Devices’ closing stock price on July 25, 2016, Linear Technology shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $60.00 per share.
