The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Dresser-Rand Group Inc. (“Dresser-Rand” or the “Company”) (NYSE:DRC) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Siemens AG.

Under the terms of the transaction, Dresser-Rand shareholders are anticipated to receive $83.00 in cash for each share of Dresser-Rand stock owned. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into the transaction, and whether Siemens AG is underpaying for Dresser-Rand shares. In particular, the proposed offer price represents a premium of only 3.9% to the $79.91 per share closing price of Dresser-Rand stock on September 19, 2014, the last trading day prior to the deal’s announcement. The $83.00 per share offer price also fails to provide any meaningful premium to the 52-week trading high of Dresser-Rand stock of $82.50 per share.
