Robbins Arroyo LLP Alerts Shareholders that the Acquisition of XRS Corporation (XRSC) by Omnitracs, LLC May Not Be in Shareholders’ Best Interests
Robbins Arroyo LLP are investigating the proposed acquisition of XRS Corporation (NASDAQ: XRSC) by Omnitracs, LLC. On September 2, 2014, the companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Omnitracs will acquire XRS Corp. Under the terms of the agreement, holders of XRS Corp. will receive $5.60 per share for each share of XRS Corp. owned.
Is the Proposed Acquisition Best for XRS Corp. and Its Shareholders?
Robbins Arroyo LLP’s investigation focuses on whether the board of directors at XRS Corp. is undertaking a fair process to obtain maximum value and adequately compensate its shareholders.
As an initial matter, on August 7, 2014, XRS Corp. released its third quarter 2014 earnings, reporting strong revenue increases. Notably, for the three months ended June 30, 2014, mobile software revenue increased 19% compared to the same period in fiscal year 2013. Additionally, working capital increased from $13 million as of September 30, 2013 to $16.1 million as of June 30, 2014. In announcing the third quarter results, Jay Coughlan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer noted, “It’s been an impressive quarter for customer growth and we are pleased that over 190 fleets chose our XRS platform as their fleet management and compliance solution…. Continued investment in our solution positions us well to capitalize on the growing compliance market.”
In light of these facts, Robbins Arroyo LLP is examining XRS Corp.’s board of directors’ decision to merge the company now rather than allow shareholders to continue to participate in the company’s continued success and future growth prospects.
XRS Corp. shareholders have the option to file a class action lawsuit to ensure the board of directors obtains the best possible price for shareholders and the disclosure of material information.
