Robbins Umeda LLP Is Investigating Rural/Metro Corporation Acquisition for Shareholders

Robbins Umeda LLP, a shareholder rights litigation firm, is interested in helping shareholders of Rural/Metro Corporation.  The firm has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by members of the board of directors of Rural/Metro (NASDAQ: RURL) in connection with their efforts to sell the company to Warburg Pincus.

On March 28, 2011, Rural/Metro announced it has entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Warburg Pincus will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Rural/Metro.  Under the current agreement, Rural/Metro shareholders will receive $17.25 in cash for each share of Rural/Metro common stock they hold.  The transaction is expected to close by the end of June 2011.

The investigation is focused on whether Rural/Metro’s board is undertaking a fair process to obtain maximum value for its shareholders.  Notably, on February 9, 2011, Rural/Metro reported revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 that beat analysts’ expectations.  Additionally, three analysts that cover Rural/Metro have set target prices for Rural/Metro above the proposed consideration being offered for the company.
