Nov. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- An investor in NASDAQ:CRDN shares filed a lawsuit in effort to stop the proposed buyout of Ceradyne, for $35.00 per NASDAQ:CRDN share.

The proposed transaction has an aggregate value of approximately $860 million, or approximately $670 million net of cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and debt acquired.
