WeissLaw LLP Investigates Acme Packet Inc. Acquisition17:30 EST Monday, February 04, 2013 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Acme Packet Inc. (“Acme” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: APKT) arising from its agreement for Acme to be acquired by Oracle Corp. (“Oracle”) in a transaction valued at approximately $1.7 billion. Under the terms of the proposed transaction Acme shareholders will receive $29.25 in cash for each Acme share they own. WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether Acme's Board acted in the best interests of its public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize shareholder value for Acme's public shareholders, prior to entering into the proposed transaction with Oracle. The offer price is a significant discount to Acme's 52-week high of $36.27.
