An investigation on behalf of investors of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc (NASDAQ:BUFF) in connection with the proposed takeover was announced and NASDAQ:BUFF stockholders should contact the Shareholders Foundation.

San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2018 -- An investigation on behalf of investors, who currently hold shares of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc (NASDAQ:BUFF), was announced concerning whether the takeover of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc. by General Mills, Inc for $40.00 per share is unfair to NASDAQ:BUFF stockholders.

Investors who purchased shares of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc (NASDAQ:BUFF) and currently hold any of those NASDAQ:BUFF shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1(858) 779 - 1554.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:BUFF investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

On February 23, 2018, General Mills, Inc. (NYSE: GIS) and Blue Buffalo Pet Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: BUFF) announced that they have entered into an agreement under which General Mills will acquire Blue Buffalo for $40.00 per share in cash.

However given that at least one analyst has set the high target price for NASDAQ:BUFF shares at $40.00 per share, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NASDAQ:BUFF stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Blue Buffalo Pet Products 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.

On February 28, 2018, NASDAQ:BUFF shares closed at $40.06 per share.

Those who are current investors in Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc (NASDAQ:BUFF) shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
