BMC Shareholder Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale to Private Investor Group

12:09 EDT Monday, May 06, 2013

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 BMC Software, Inc. (“BMC”) (Nasdaq: BMC) to a private investor group led by Bain Capital and Golden Gate Capital together with GIC Special Investments Pte Ltd. for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed sale valued at approximately $6.9 billion, BMC shareholders will only receive $46.25 for each share of BMC stock owned, well below at least one analyst's estimate of $52.00 per share.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the lawsuit or join the action, please contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, (214) 239-4568, via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com or Zach Groover at Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at zach@powerstaylor.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

The BMC sale investigation centers on whether BMC's shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed deal, whether the transaction undervalues BMC's stock, and whether BMC's board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance has estimated that the true inherent value of BMC stock could be as high as $52.00 per share. According to shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe, “Due to the size of the deal, analysts' estimates, the lack of a significant premium and other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue BMC's stock. Our proposed 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.

Powers Taylor, LLP is a boutique litigation law firm that handles a variety of complex business litigation matters, including claims of investor and stockholder fraud, shareholder oppression, shareholder derivative suits, and security class actions.
