Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Hudson Ltd. (NYSE: HUD) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s acquisition by Dufry AG Group.

On August 19, 2020, Hudson announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Dufry, Hudson’s current controlling shareholder with 57.4% ownership of the company. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Hudson’s stockholders will receive $7.70 in cash for each share of Hudson common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that Hudson’s board of directors oversaw an unfair process and ultimately agreed to an inadequate deal price. Indeed, Hudson’s stock has recently traded well above the merger consideration of $7.70. Accordingly, the firm is investigating all relevant aspects of the deal and is committed to securing the best result possible for Hudson’s stockholders.
