December 19, 2016 (Shareholders Foundation) - An investigation on behalf of investors, who currently hold shares of Neustar Inc (NYSE:NSR), was announced concerning whether the takeover of Neustar Inc. by a private investment group led by Golden Gate Capital for $33.50 per share is unfair to NYSE:NSR stockholders.
