DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Artio Global Investors, Inc. (“Artio”) (NYSE: ART) to Aberdeen Asset Management PLC for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed sale valued at approximately $175 million, Artio shareholders will receive $2.75 in cash for each share of Artio stock owned, well below the 52-week high of $5.26.
“Based on the historical prices, the proposed sale price and other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue Artio’s stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”

The Artio sale investigation centers on whether Artio’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed acquisition of the Company, whether the transaction undervalues Artio’s stock, and whether Artio’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. According to shareholder rights attorney Patrick Powers, “Based on the historical prices, the proposed sale price and other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue Artio’s stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
