Thursday, September 15, 2011

Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of JAKKS Pacific, Inc.11:37 EDT Thursday, September 15, 2011 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of JAKKS Pacific, Inc. ("JAKKS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: JAKK) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”) in a transaction valued at approximately $670 million. On September 14, 2011, Oaktree announced that certain funds it manages have made a proposal to acquire all outstanding shares of JAKKS. Under the terms of the proposal, JAKKS stockholders will receive $20.00 in cash for each share of JAKKS common stock held. Our investigation concerns whether the board of directors of the Company is undertaking a fair process to obtain fair consideration for all stockholders of JAKKS. Oaktree claims that the JAKKS board of directors has “repeatedly declined to pursue meaningful discussions” in connection with the proposal to take the company private. Analysts have set target prices for the stock between $22.00 and $24.00 per share.
