Lundy Law Commences An Investigation Into The Proposed Acquisition Of Health Net, Inc.
Lundy Law is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Health Net, Inc. (“Health Net” or the “Company”) (NYSE: HNT) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Centene Corporation (“Centene”) in a transaction valued at approximately $6.3 billion. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Health Net shareholders will receive 0.622 shares of Centene common stock and $28.25 in cash for each share of Health Net common stock they own, for a total consideration of $78.57 based on Centene’s July 1, 2015 closing price.
Among other things, the investigation concerns whether the proposed transaction undervalues the Company, and whether the Board of Directors of Health Net adequately pursued alternatives to the proposed transaction and is achieving the best possible value for the Company’s shareholders. At least one analyst has set a target price of $75.00, and Wall Street analysts have projected future growth for the Company.
