Cymer, Inc. (CYMI) Investor Lawsuit to Stop Takeover Announced by Shareholders Foundation

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that an investor filed a lawsuit for current stockholders in shares of Cymer, Inc. (CYMI) in effort to stop the proposed takeover of Cymer, Inc. at a value of approximately $81.64 per share.

Investors who purchased shares of Cymer, Inc. (CYMI) prior to October 17, 2012 and currently hold any of those CYMI shares, have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc. at or call +1 (858) 779-1554.

On October 17, 2012, Cymer, Inc. (CYMI) and ASML Holding NV announced that they have entered into an agreement under which ASML Holding NV will acquire all outstanding shares of Cymer in a cash-and-stock transaction. Based on a closing price of ASML Holding NV shares on October 16, 2012, of $53.59, Cymer stockholders would receive a value of approximately $81.64 per CYMI share.

However, the plaintiff alleges that defendants breached their fiduciary duties arising out of the attempt to sell the company too cheaply via an unfair process. The plaintiff claims that the offer is unfair and undervalues the company.
