Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating whether the Board of Directors of Accelrys, Inc. (“Accelrys” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACCL) breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in agreeing to sell Accelrys to Dassault Systemes SA.

Under the terms of the agreement, Accelrys shareholders will receive $12.50 in cash for each share they own.  The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the price to Accelrys shareholders and the process by which the Accelrys Board of Directors considered and approved the transaction.
