Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims on Behalf of Investors of The Warnaco Group, Inc.13:21 EDT Thursday, November 01, 2012 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of The Warnaco Group, Inc. (“Warnaco” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WRC) (ISIN: US9343904028) concerning the proposed acquisition of Warnaco by PVH Corp. in a cash and stock transaction valued at approximately $2.9 billion. The investigation concerns whether the Warnaco directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Warnaco shareholders would receive $51.75 in cash and 0.1822 of a share of PVH Corp. common stock for each share of Warnaco common stock, for a total of $68.43 per Warnaco common share. However, at least one analyst set a target price for Warnaco of $75.00 per share. Warnaco shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Samuel J. Adams at sjadams@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 300.
