Under the terms of the transaction, MWV shareholders will receive 0.78 shares of Rock-Tenn common stock for each common share of MWV they own. The proposed transaction is valued at approximately $9.7 billion. The claims concern whether the Board of MWV breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Rock-Tenn is underpaying for MWV shares.
