NEW YORK, May 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky notifies investors of Furiex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Furiex" or "the Company") (Nasdaq:FURX) of claims of breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law against the board of directors of the Company in connection with the sale of the Company to Forest Laboratories, Inc. ("Forest"). A complaint was filed in Delaware state court.

Under the terms of the transaction, Furiex shareholders will receive $95.00 per share in cash for each share of Furiex stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $1.1 billion. An additional $30.00 per share ($360 million in aggregate) may be payable to shareholders in a Contingent Value Right (CVR) based on the status of eluxodoline, Furiex's lead product, as a controlled drug following approval. The claims concern whether the Furiex Board of directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Forest is underpaying for Furiex shares.
