Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Bazaarvoice Inc. (“Bazaarvoice” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:BV). The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duties by the Company or its fiduciaries. Bazaarvoice provides various social commerce solutions in the United States and internationally.
Specifically, the investigation relates to a civil antitrust lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) against Bazaarvoice challenging the Company's June 2012 acquisition of PowerReviews Inc. According to the DOJ, the $168.2 million transaction substantially lessened competition in the market for product ratings and reviews platforms in the United States, resulting in higher prices and diminished innovation.
