Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Viasystems Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIAS) (“Viasystems” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to TTM Technologies Group, Inc. (“TTM”). On September 22, 2014, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which TTM will acquire Viasystems in a merger in a deal worth $368 million (excluding debt). As a result of the merger, Viasystems shareholders are only anticipated to receive $11.33 per share in cash and 0.706 shares of TTM stock in exchange for each share of Viasystems.

Andrews & Springer’s investigation focuses on the insufficient consideration that Viasystems shareholders are expected to receive. Following the merger, Viasystems shareholders are expected to be substantially diluted, owning only a small minority interest of the combined company. Additionally, the 0.706 fixed exchange ratio restricts the value that Viasystems shareholders are expected to receive by exposing Viasystems shareholders to the volatility of TTM’s share price.

Andrews & Springer is also investigating whether Viasystems directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the company and maximize shareholder value.
