NEW YORK, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Vocus, Inc. ("Vocus" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: VOCS) (ISIN: US92858J1088) (CUSIP: 92858J108) concerning the proposed acquisition of Vocus by GTCR Valor Merger Sub, Inc., an affiliate of GTCR LLC.
The investigation concerns whether the Vocus directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the transaction, Vocus shareholders will receive $18.00 in cash for each share of Vocus common stock owned. However, the Price to Revenue and Total Assets multiples are below the averages of comparable transactions.
Vocus shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at [email protected] or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
