Under the terms of the transaction, Family Dollar shareholders will receive $59.60 in cash and the equivalent of $14.90 in Dollar Tree shares for each share of Family Dollar common stock they own. The claims concern whether the Board of Family Dollar breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Dollar Tree, Inc. is underpaying for Family Dollar shares.
