(NasdaqGS: VMED) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed acquisition by Liberty Global, Inc. On February 5, 2013, Liberty Global announced that it had entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire all outstanding shares of VMED in a stock and cash transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, Virgin Media shareholders will receive $17.50 in cash, 0.2582 Liberty Global Series A shares and 0.1928 Liberty Global Series C shares for each Virgin Media share that they hold. Based on Liberty Global`s Series A share price of $69.46 and Series C share price of $64.50 as of February 4, 2013, this implies a price of $47.87 per Virgin Media share; based upon the closing price on February 4, 2013. The investigation will determine whether Virgin Media`s board of directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to satisfactorily shop the company before entering into this agreement. Jim Baker, lead analyst for Johnson & Weaver, stated that, "Liberty Global`s offer appears to be inadequate and not in the best interest of Virgin Media`s shareholders." In particular, Baker noted that Virgin Media`s results over recent years have demonstrated their ability to grow revenue, control costs, and generate cash.
