U.S. Geothermal (HTM) Alert: Johnson Fistel Investigates Proposed Sale of U.S. Geothermal Inc.; Are Shareholders Getting a Fair Deal?
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of U.S. Geothermal Inc. (NYSE: HTM) ("U.S. Geothermal") breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Ormat Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ORA) ("Ormat").
On January 24, 2018, U.S. Geothermal announced that it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Ormat. Under the terms of the agreement, U.S. Geothermal shareholders will receive $5.45 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the U.S. Geothermal board failed to satisfy its duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for U.S. Geothermal shares of common stock. Nationally recognized Johnson Fistel is investigating whether the proposed deal represents adequate consideration, especially given the Company's projected revenue and earnings growth and one Wall Street analyst has a $6.00 price target on the stock.
If you are a shareholder of U.S. Geothermal and believe the proposed buyout price is too low or you're interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact lead analyst Jim Baker (email@example.com) at 619-814-4471. If emailing, please include a phone number.
