15:32 EDT Monday, May 06, 2013

WILMINGTON, Del. (Business Wire) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:

  • Do you own shares of BMC Software, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: BMC )?
  • Did you purchase any of your shares prior to May 6, 2013?
  • Do you think the proposed buyout price is too low?

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of BMC Software, Inc. (“BMC” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: BMC) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by Bain Capital, Golden Gate Capital, GIC Special Investments Pte Ltd and Insight Venture Partners (collectively, the “Investor Group”) in a transaction valued at approximately $6.9 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of BMC will receive $46.25 per share in cash for each share of BMC they own.

The investigation concerns whether BMC's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for BMC's shareholders before entering into an agreement with the Investor Group. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for BMC stock at $52.00.
