Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating whether the Board of Directors of Food Technology Service, Inc. (“FTSI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VIFL) breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in agreeing to sell FTSI to an affiliate of Sterigenics International LLC.
Under the terms of the agreement, FTSI shareholders will receive $7.23 in cash for each share they own. The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the price to FTSI shareholders and the process by which the FTSI Board of Directors considered and approved the transaction.
Bernstein Liebhard LLP has pursued hundreds of securities, consumer and shareholder rights cases and recovered over $3 billion for its clients. It has been named to The National Law Journal’s “Plaintiffs’ Hot List” in each of the last eleven years.
