The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of breached their fiduciary duties owed to investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:ZLTQ stockholders by agreeing to sell Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc too cheaply via an unfair process to Allergan plc.

However, plaintiff claims that the proposed consideration NASDAQ:ZLTQ shareholders will receive is grossly inadequate and undervalues ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc reported that its annual Total Revenue rose from $174.48 million in 2014 to $255.42 million in 2015 and that its Net Income grew from $1.53 million in 2014 to $41.80 million in 2015. Shares of Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc (NASDAQ:ZLTQ) grew from $19.26 per share in February 2016 to as high as $51.97 per share on February 10, 2017.
In addition, the plaintiff alleges that the process is also unfair NASDAQ:ZLTQ stockholders.

On March 27, 2017, NASDAQ:ZLTQ shares closed at $55.78 per share.
