Jan. 23, 2013 - PRLog -- An investor in shares of Ameristar Casinos, Inc.  filed a lawsuit against directors of Ameristar Casinos in effort to halt the takeover of Ameristar Casinos, Inc.by Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc Incorporated at $26.50 per NASDAQ-ASCA share

Investors who purchased shares of Ameristar Casinos, Inc.  prior to December 21, 2012, and currently hold any of those NASDAQ-ASCA shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1(858) 779 - 1554.

According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ-ASCA stockholders by agreeing to sell the company too cheaply via an unfair process.

On December 21, 2012, Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc.  and Ameristar Casinos, Inc. (Nasdaq GS: ASCA) announced that the companies have entered into an agreement under which Pinnacle Entertainment will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Ameristar Casinos for $26.50 per share in cash, for a total enterprise value of $2.8 billion, including debt of $1.9 billion and cash on hand of $116 million as of September 30, 2012.

However, the plaintiff alleges that the $26.50-offer is too low and unfair to NASDAQ-ASCA stockholders. Indeed, at least one analyst has set the high target price for shares of Ameristar Casinos, Inc.  at $33.00 per share.

Those who are current investors in Ameristar Casinos, Inc. , have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1(858) 779 - 1554.
