ATLANTA (Business Wire) -- Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is investigating potential shareholder claims on behalf of investors who currently own Optimer Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Trius Therapeutics, Inc. or Maidenform Brands, Inc. common stock.

Optimer Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

On July 30, 2013, it was announced that Cubist Pharmaceuticals would acquire all outstanding shares of Optimer Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: OPTR) for $10.75 per share, plus a Contingency Value Right that would entitle the holder to an additional $5 per share if net sales targets for its drug DIFICID are achieved.
