LAWSUIT ALERT: Andrews & Springer LLC Announces That A Law Firm Has Filed A Class Action Lawsuit Against Epiq Systems, Inc. - EPIQ

WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, announced today that a class action lawsuit has been filed by another law firm on behalf of stockholders of Epiq Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:EPIQ) (“Epiq” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to OMERS Private Equity (“OMERS”).

If you would like to join the class action, please visit our website or contact Craig J. Springer, Esq. at cspringer@andrewsspringer.com, or call toll free at 1-800-423-6013.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE. 

On August 2, 2016, the two parties announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which OMERS will acquire Epiq in a merger in a deal worth $1 billion. As a result of the merger, Epiq shareholders are only anticipated to receive $16.50 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Epiq.

The consideration Epiq shareholders are expected to receive is inadequate. While the Company claims that shareholders will receive a significant premium for their shares, the Company recently traded as high as $15.33 as of June 6, 2016, which represents only a 7.6% premium to the merger consideration. Our investigation has also revealed that the process leading up to the announcement of the merger appears to have significant conflicts of interest with Epiq management, thus making the process and consideration unfair.

On August 2, 2016, an Epiq shareholder represented by another law firm filed a class action in the Circuit Court of Jackson County, 16th Judicial District, Missouri, Case No. 1616-CV18720, challenging the merger.
