SAN DIEGO, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of SUPERVALU INC. ("SUPERVALU") (NYSE:SVU) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to United Natural Foods, Inc. ("UNFI"). SUPERVALU operates as a grocery wholesaler and retailer in the United States and internationally.

On July 26, 2018, SUPERVALU announced that it had signed a definitive merger agreement with UNFI. Under the terms of the merger agreement, UNFI will acquire SUPERVALU for $32.50 per share in cash

The investigation concerns whether the SUPERVALU board failed to satisfy its duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for SUPERVALU shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson Fistel is investigating whether the proposed deal represents adequate consideration, especially given Wall Street analysts' projections for SUPERVALU's future earnings and revenue growth. Additionally, one Wall Street analyst has a $55.00 price target on the stock.
