November 04, 2014 (Shareholders Foundation) - An investigation on behalf of investors, who currently hold shares of Aviv REIT Inc (NYSE:AVIV), was announced concerning whether the takeover of Aviv REIT Inc by Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc for a value of approximately $34.97 per share is unfair to NYSE:AVIV stockholders.

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

On October 31, 2014, Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (NYSE: OHI) and Aviv REIT Inc (NYSE:AVIV) announced that the Boards of Directors of both companies have approved an agreement under which Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Aviv in a stock-for-stock merger. The transaction values Aviv REIT Inc (NYSE:AVIV) at $3.0 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, Aviv REIT Inc (NYSE:AVIV) shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.90 Omega shares for each share of Aviv REIT Inc (NYSE:AVIV) common stock they own. Based on the closing stock price for Omega on Thursday, October 30th, 2014, this consideration would be equivalent to $34.97 of Omega stock for each NYSE:AVIV share.

However, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSE:AVIV stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Aviv REIT Board of Directors undertook an adequate sales process, adequately shopped the company before entering into the transaction, maximized shareholder value by negotiating the best price, and acted in the shareholders' best interests in connection with the proposed sale.
