    The claims concern whether the Ardea Board of Directors breached their
fiduciary duties to Ardea stockholders by failing to adequately shop the

underpaying for Ardea shares, thus unlawfully harming Ardea stockholders.
In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Ardea stock at
$40.00 per share.
