The investigations by law firms concern whether Transcend Services, certain officers and directors, and/or others breached their fiduciary duties owed to Transcend Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRCR)
On Wednesday, March 7, 2012, Transcend Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRCR) and Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) announced an agreement for Nuance Communications, Inc. to acquire Transcend Services, Inc. for approximately $300 million, net, in cash.
Under the terms of the proposed transaction Nuance Communications, Inc. has agreed to acquire Transcend Services, Inc. through a cash tender offer of $29.50 per Transcend Services, Inc. share.
Transcend Services, Inc. said the offer represents an approximately 30 percent premium over Transcend’s 90-day volume weighted average share price.
However, NASDAQ:TRCR shares traded as recently as October 24, 2011 at $28.71, respectively on November 4, 2011 at $28.45, thus leaving some NASDAQ:TRCR stockholders with only a meager premium. IN fact, NASDAQ:TRCR shares traded in July 2011 as high as $29.90 per share thus offering those stockholders a discount. Furthermore, at least one analyst has set the high target price for NASDAQ:TRCR shares at $34 per share.
Therefore the investigation for NASDAQ:TRCR investors concerns whether the Transcend Services Board of Directors undertook an adequate sales process and in particular breached their fiduciary duties to Transcend Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRCR)
Despite the analysts target price and higher stock prices in July 2011 than the current offer Transcend Services, Inc has also performed well for its investors in the past. Its annual Revenue rose from $48.70million in 2008 to $125.06million in 2011 and its Net Income surged from $5.77million in ’08 to $19.04million in 2011.
