Duff & Phelps Shareholder Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale to Private Equity Firms

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Duff & Phelps Corporation (“Duff”) (NYSE: DUF) to a consortium of private equity firms for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed deal valued at approximately $665.5 million, Duff shareholders will only receive $15.55 in cash for each share of Duff stock owned, well below at least one analyst’s estimated value of $24.00 per share and the 52 week high of $16.50 per share.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, contact Zach Groover at Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at zach@powerstaylor.com or Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 239-4568, or via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

The Duff sale investigation centers on whether Duff’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Duff’s stock, and whether Duff’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Notably, according to at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance, the true inherent value of Duff could be as high as $24.00 per share. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “due to the proposed sale price, the size of the deal and other factors, we believe that this transaction may undervalue Duff’s stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
