SMITHFIELD FOODS SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Announces Investigation into Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by Board of Smithfield Foods Inc. in Connection with Sale to Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd.

15:25 EDT Wednesday, May 29, 2013

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Smithfield Foods Inc. (“Smithfield” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SFD) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to the Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd.

Click here to learn more about the investigation http://zlk.9nl.com/smithfield-foods-sfd/, or call: 877-363-5972. There is no cost or obligation to you.

Under the terms of the transaction, Smithfield shareholders will receive $34 for each share of Smithfield stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $7.1 billion, including the assumption of debt. The investigation concerns whether the Smithfield Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the transaction, and whether Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. is underpaying for Smithfield, thus unlawfully harming Smithfield shareholders. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Smithfield stock at $48.00 per share.
