Thursday, November 15, 2012

Teavana Holdings Investor Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale to Starbucks Corp.09:33 EST Thursday, November 15, 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 Teavana Holdings, Inc. (“Teavana”) (NYSE: TEA) to Starbucks Corp. for shareholders. Under the proposed deal valued at approximately $620 million, Teavana shareholders will only receive $15.50 in cash for each share of Teavana stock owned, well below at least one analyst's estimated value of $29.00 per share and the 52-week high of $26.03. If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, contact Patrick Powers at Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at patrick@powerstaylor.com, or Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 706-9314, or via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com. There is no cost or fee to you. The Teavana sale investigation centers on whether Teavana's shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Teavana's stock, and whether Teavana's board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to an analyst with Yahoo! Finance, the true inherent value of Teavana could be as high as $29.00 per share, well above the proposed price of $15.50. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “Based upon analysts' estimates, the recent performance of the company, and other factors, we believe that this transaction may undervalue Teavana stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.” The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC is a full service business litigation and shareholder rights advocacy firm with more than 20 years of experience in complex litigation and transactional matters.
