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 Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (“Sigma-Aldrich” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SIAL) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Merck KGaA (“Merck”), in a transaction valued at approximately $17 billion.

Under the terms of the transaction, Sigma-Aldrich shareholders are anticipated to receive $140.00 in cash for each share of Sigma-Aldrich common stock they own.
