Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Ultratech, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: UTEK) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Ultratech, Inc. (“Ultratech” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: UTEK) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Veeco Instruments Inc. (“Veeco”) (NASDAQ GS: VECO), in a transaction valued at approximately $815 million.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Ultratech will receive (i) $21.75 per share in cash and (ii) 0.2675 of a share of Veeco common stock for each Ultratech common share outstanding.  Based on Veeco's closing stock price on February 1, 2017, the transaction consideration is valued at approximately $28.64 per Ultratech share.

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