Faruqi & Faruqi Investigation: Symetra Financial Corporation

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Symetra Financial Corporation (SYA) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Sumitomo Life Insurance Company

Symetra Financial


Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Symetra Financial Corporation (“Symetra” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SYA) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Sumitomo Life Insurance Company for approximately $3.8 billion in cash.
The Company’s stockholders will only receive $32.50, including dividends, for each share of Company common stock they own. However, the offer represents a negligible premium to Symetra’s August 14, 2015 opening price of $31.55 per share.
The investigation focuses on whether Symetra’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of Symetra’s shareholders.
