Schawk, Inc. Merger Litigation (NYSE: SGK)

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Proposed Buyout of Schawk, Inc. May Be Unfair For Shareholders - SGK 
BALA CYNWYD, March 17, 2014 /PR Newswire/ –Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Schawk, Inc. (“Schawk” or the “Company”) (NYSE –SGK-News) relating to the proposed acquisition by Matthews International Corporation (“Matthews”). 
Are the Terms of the Transaction Fair? 
Under the terms of the transaction, Schawk shareholders will receive only $11.80 in cash and 0.20582 shares of Matthews common stock for each share of Schawk stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Schawk for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process. The Schawk family and their family trusts own approximately 61% of the common stock of the Company. In addition, following the transaction, Schawk’s CEO is expected to remain with the Company and have a seat on the Board. This calls into question if the minority shareholders of Schawk are being treated fairly.
