Robbins Umeda LLP has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by members of the board of directors of NovaMed Inc. (NASDAQ: NOVA) in connection with their efforts to sell the company to Surgery Center Holdings, Inc., an affiliate of H.I.G. Capital, LLC. If the transaction is completed, NovaMed shareholders will receive $13.25 in cash for each share of NovaMed common stock they hold. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2011.
Robbins Umeda LLP’s investigation concerns whether the NovaMed board undertook a fair process to obtain fair consideration for its shareholders. Specifically, the investigation concerns whether members of the NovaMed board breached their fiduciary duties to its shareholders by failing to adequately shop the company before entering into the transaction with Surgery Center Holdings.
