STEVENSON, Md.--(Business Wire)--
The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has
commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current
shareholders of Asset Acceptance Capital Corp. ("Asset Acceptance" or the
"Company") (Nasdaq: AACC) and other violations of state law by the board of
directors of Asset Acceptance relating to the proposed acquisition of the
Company by Encore Capital Group, Inc. ("Encore"). The firm`s investigation seeks
to determine, among other things, whether Asset Acceptance`s board of directors
breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value. 

As stated in the press release announcing the proposed acquisition, Encore will
acquire Asset Acceptance for $6.50 per share, which represents a total equity
value of approximately $200 million. Asset Acceptance shareholders will have the
option to receive their consideration in cash or Encore stock or any combination
of cash and Encore stock, at their election, with the aggregate stock
consideration across all stockholders capped at 25 percent of the total equity
consideration to be received. According to Yahoo! Finance, the high analyst
price target is $8.00 per Asset Acceptance share.
