WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether (i) Flexion’s board of directors acted in the best interests of Company shareholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction, (ii) the $8.50 per-share offer price adequately compensates Flexion’s shareholders, and (iii) all information regarding the sales process and valuation of the transaction will be fully and fairly disclosed.  Notably, the merger consideration is below the $17.00 median price targets set by analysts following the Company and at least one analyst set a price target for the Company of $25 per share.   

WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties.  We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.  If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at [email protected]
