Under the terms of the transaction, Amerigroup shareholders will receive $92.00 per share of Amerigroup stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $4.9 billion. The claims concern whether the Company's Board breached its fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction, whether WellPoint is underpaying for Amerigroup shares, thus unlawfully harming Amerigroup stockholders. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Amerigroup stock at $95.00 per share.
