Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating the acquisition of Polypore International, Inc. (NYSE: PPO) (“Polypore” or the “Company”) on behalf of its’ shareholders. Polypore announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Asahi Kasei Corp. (“Asahi”) under which Asahi will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Polypore common stock for $60.50 per share. Polypore also announced that it will sell its Separations Media segment to 3M Company for $1 billion.

Our investigation has determined that the offer price of only $60.50 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, analysts have projected the Company is worth at least $62 per share.

If you are a shareholder of Polypore 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 1-800-906-6432 or contact us via our website.
