Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of UIL Holdings Corporation (NYSE: UIL) Merger

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of UIL Holdings Corporation (“UIL” or the “Company”) (NYSE: UIL) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to merge with Iberdrola USA (“Iberdrola”).

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of UIL will receive one share in the newly-listed U.S. company plus a cash payment of $10.50 for each share of UIL they own.  The proposed transaction implies total value per share to UIL shareholders of $52.75.

The investigation concerns whether UIL’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for UIL’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Iberdrola.
