WeissLaw LLP Investigates GulfMark Offshore, Inc. Acquisition

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of GulfMark Offshore, Inc. ("GLF" or the "Company") (NYSE:GLF) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Tidewater Inc. ("TDW") (NYSE:TDW).  Under the terms of the merger agreement, GLF shareholders will receive 1.10 shares of TDW for each GLF share they own.  This represents consideration of $33.68 per share, based on TDW's July 13 closing price of $30.62.

WeissLaw is investigating whether GLF's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement.  Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $42.00 per share, or $8.32 above the consideration.  Additionally, the Company recently announced positive financial results for the three-month period ending March 31, 2018, reporting sequential growth of 13% in average day rates.

Finally, at closing, GLF shareholders will own a meager 26% of the combined company on a fully diluted basis.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether GLF's shareholders will obtain their fair and proportionate share of the Company's continued success and growth prospects.  If you own GLF shares and would like more information about your rights or our investigation, or if you have information to share with us, please contact Joshua Rubin by telephone at (888) 593-4771 or by email at
