Faruqi & Faruqi Investigation: Meredith Corporation

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Meredith Corporation (MDP) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Media General, Inc.

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Meredith Corporation (“Meredith” or the “Company”) (NYSE:MDP) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Media General, Inc. for approximately $3.1 billion.
The Company’s stockholders will only receive 1.5214 shares of a new holding company formed by Media General and $34.57 in cash for each share of Company common stock they own, or approximately $49.95 per share. However, the offer is below the Company’s 52-week high and at least one analyst’s price target of $58.00 per share.
The investigation focuses on whether Meredith’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 Meredith’s shareholders.
