Ceradyne Investor Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale to 3M10:08 EDT Monday, October 01, 2012 DALLAS (Business Wire) -- Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Ceradyne, Inc. (“Ceradyne”) (Nasdaq: CRDN) to 3M for shareholders. Under the proposed Ceradyne sale, Ceradyne shareholders will receive only $35.00 in cash for each share of Ceradyne stock owned (well below at least one analysts estimated value of $37.00 per share) in a deal valued at approximately $670 million.

The Ceradyne sale investigation centers on whether Ceradyne shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Ceradyne stock, and whether Ceradyne's board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst estimates the true inherent value of the shares could be as high as $37.00 per share. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “due to the proposed sale price, we believe that the transaction may undervalue Ceradyne stock.
