Why is there an investigation?
On March 13, 2023, Momentive—the parent of Survey Monkey—announced that it has agreed to be acquired by an investor consortium led by STG for $9.46 per share in cash. The sale has been approved by the Momentive board of directors (Board).
“We are investigating whether the Momentive Board acted in the best interests of Momentive shareholders in approving the sale,” explained Joshua Fruchter, one of the law firm’s name partners. “This includes whether the price agreed upon is fair to Momentive shareholders, and whether all material information regarding the transaction has been fully disclosed.”
Notably, the $9.46 per share deal price is well below the 52-week high for Momentive of $18.48 per share on April 20, 2022, which indicates that STG may be taking advantage of the temporary market downturn to acquire Momentive at a bargain price.
Further, according to an analysis of Wall Street price targets for Momentive in the last 90 days published on Seeking Alpha, there is a high price target for Momentive of $13.00 per share, and an average price target of $10.42, which indicates that several Wall Street analysts think the deal price is too low.
