SAN DIEGO (Business Wire) -- Zeldes & Haeggquist, LLP, a shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, has commenced an investigation into possible legal claims against the board of directors of Gardner Denver, Inc. (“Gardner Denver”) (NYSE: GDI) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to Gardner Denver's entry into an agreement to be acquired by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (together with its affiliates, “KKR”) (NYSE: KKR) in a transaction valued at approximately $3.9 billion, including the assumption of debt.
