Halper Sadeh LLC Probes Potential Securities Violations in Major Acquisitions

Halper Sadeh LLC, a prominent investor rights law firm, has launched investigations into potential securities law violations and breaches of fiduciary duties related to the sales of three companies: PlayAGS Incorporated, HashiCorp Inc., and Deciphera Pharmaceuticals Inc. The firm is examining whether shareholders were adequately compensated in these deals and if the companies' boards of directors fulfilled their fiduciary responsibilities.

Why this matters: These investigations have significant implications for corporate governance and shareholder protection, as they may uncover breaches of fiduciary duties and inadequate compensation for shareholders. The outcomes of these probes could influence the way companies approach mergers and acquisitions, leading to greater transparency and accountability in the future.

PlayAGS Incorporated, a gaming equipment supplier, is being acquired by affiliates of private equity firm Brightstar Capital Partners for $12.50 per share in cash.

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, is being purchased by Japan's ONO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. for $25.60 per share in cash.

As part of its investigations, Halper Sadeh LLC may seek increased consideration for shareholders, additional disclosures and information about the proposed transactions, or other relief and benefits on behalf of shareholders. The firm is handling these actions on a contingent fee basis, meaning shareholders will not be responsible for out-of-pocket legal fees or expenses.

Shareholders of the companies under investigation are encouraged to contact Halper Sadeh LLC to discuss their legal rights and options. They can reach out to partners Daniel Sadeh or Zachary Halper at (212) 763-0060 or via email at dsadeh@halpersadeh.com or zhalper@halpersadeh.com.
