Under the terms of the transaction, Receptos shareholders will receive only $232.00 in cash for each share of Receptos stock they own. The proposed transaction is valued at approximately $7.2 billion. The complaint alleges that the Board of Receptos breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders by agreeing to the proposed transaction for inadequate consideration. The transaction may undervalue the Company given Receptos has a strong pipeline which includes drug candidates for immune diseases.
