New York, New York
Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating the potential acquisition of Entropic Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: “ENTR”) (“Entropic” or the “Company”) on behalf of its’ shareholders. MaxLinear, Inc. and Entropic have entered into an agreement for MaxLinear to acquire Entropic. Entropic shareholders will receive (i) $1.20 per share in cash and (ii) 0.2200 shares of MaxLinear common stock for each share Entropic common share outstanding. Based on MaxLinear’s closing stock price on February 2, 2015, the merger consideration is valued at approximately $3.01 per Entropic share.
Our investigation has revealed that the offer price of only $3.01 per share unfairly under-values the true going forward inherent value of the Company and that shareholders are not receiving the maximum value for their shares. Indeed, among other things, the Company’s book value is $2.19 per share, the Company has no long term debt and has almost $90 million of cash or $1.00 per share, an analyst has projected the stock is worth at least $5 per share, and the stock has traded at the buyout price within the past year ($4.80 per share), negating any premium that is being offered.
If you are a shareholder of Entropic and would like additional information as to how the acquisition may affect your rights as a shareholder, and how you may be eligible to obtain a higher price for your shares, please contact us toll free at 1-800-511-7037 or contact us via our website.
