Why is there an investigation?
On March 14, 2023, Cvent announced that it had agreed to be sold to Blackstone for $8.50 per share in cash. The sale has been approved by the Cvent board of directors (“Board”) upon the recommendation of a special committee (“Special Committee”) of the Board purportedly comprised solely of disinterested and independent Board members.
“We are investigating whether the Cvent Board acted in the best interests of Cvent shareholders in approving the sale,” explained Joshua Fruchter, a founding partner of Wohl & Fruchter. “This includes whether the price agreed upon is fair to Cvent shareholders, whether all material information regarding the transaction has been fully disclosed, and whether the members of the Special Committee were truly disinterested and independent.”
Notably, according to an analysis of Wall Street price targets for Cvent in the last 90 days published on Seeking Alpha, there is a high price target of $11.00 per share, which indicates that at least one Wall Street analyst thinks the deal price is too low.
Additionally, Vista Equity Partners, the principal stockholder of Cvent, has agreed to invest a portion of its proceeds as non-convertible preferred stock in financing for the deal. The opportunity to share in the future growth of Cvent is not being made available to public stockholders.
