NEW YORK, April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Zygo Corporation ("Zygo" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ZIGO) (ISIN: US9898551018) (CUSIP: 989855101) concerning the proposed acquisition of Zygo by AMETEK, Inc.
The investigation concerns whether the Zygo directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the transaction, Zygo shareholders will receive $19.25 in cash for each share of Zygo common stock owned. However, the Price to Revenue and Book Value multiples are below the averages of comparable transactions.
Zygo shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at [email protected] or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
