San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2017 -- The takeover of Avista Corp is under investigation over potential wrongdoing. The investigation was announced for investors, who currently hold NYSE:AVA shares, concerning whether the takeover of Avista. by Hydro One Limited is unfair.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain directors of Avista Corp breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:AVA investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

On July 19, 2017, Hydro One Limited (TSX:H) and Avista Corp (NYSE:AVA) jointly announced a merger agreement under which Hydro One will acquire Avista Corp (NYSE:AVA) for C$67 (US$53) per share in a C$6.7 billion (US$5.3 billion) all-cash transaction.

However, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSE:AVA stockholders.
