Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Office Depot, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: ODP) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Office Depot, Inc. (“Office Depot” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: ODP) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Staples, Inc. (“Staples”) (NASDAQ GS: SPLS), in a transaction valued at approximately $6.3 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Office Depot will receive $7.25 in cash and 0.2188 of a Staples common share for each share of Office Depot common stock.  Based on Staples’ closing stock price on February 3, 2015, Office Depot shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $11.41 per share.
