Energen (EGN) Alert: Johnson Fistel Investigates Proposed Sale of Energen Corporation; Are Shareholders Getting a Fair Deal?

PR Newswire

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Energen Corporation (NYSE:EGN) ("Energen") breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Diamondback Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:FANG) ("Diamondback"). Energen engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas.

On August 14, 2018, Energen announced that it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Diamondback. Under the terms of the agreement, Diamondback will acquire Energen in an all-stock transaction, valued at approximately $9.2 billion. The consideration will consist of 0.6442 shares of Diamondback common stock for each share of Energen common stock, representing an implied value to each Energen shareholder of $84.95 per share based on the closing price of Diamondback common stock on August 13, 2018. However, shareholders will be subject to the future price fluctuation of Diamondback's stock price.

The investigation concerns whether the Energen 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 Energen shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson Fistel is investigating whether the proposed deal represents adequate consideration, especially given one Wall Street analyst has a $110.00 price target on the stock.
