The investigation concerns whether eResearch's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and to get the best price possible for eResearch's shareholders before entering into the buyout agreement with Genstar Capital.

Under the terms of the buyout agreement, the shareholders of eResearch will receive $8.00 per share in cash for each share of the Company they own. However, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for eResearch stock at $11.00.
