SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz LLP Investigates Claims That the Merger May Not Be in the Best Interest of Investors of Zale Corporation - ZLC

14:32 EST Wednesday, February 19, 2014

NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Zale Corporation ("Zale" or the "Company") (NYSE: ZLC) (ISIN: US9888581066) (CUSIP: 988858106) concerning the proposed acquisition of Zale by Signet Jewelers Ltd.

The investigation concerns whether the Zale directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value.  Under the terms of the agreement, shares of Zale will be converted into the right to receive $21.00 in cash for each share of Zale common stock.  However, the Price to EBIT and Revenue multiples are below the averages of comparable transactions.

Zale shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.

Pomerantz LLP, with offices in New York, Chicago, Florida, and San Diego, is acknowledged as one of the premier firms in the areas of corporate, securities, and antitrust class litigation. Founded by the late Abraham L. Pomerantz, known as the dean of the class action bar, the Pomerantz LLP pioneered the field of securities class actions. Today, more than 75 years later, the Pomerantz LLP continues in the tradition he established, fighting for the rights of the victims of securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, and corporate misconduct. The Firm has recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages awards on behalf of defrauded investors. See www.pomerantzlaw.com.
