San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- An investigation on behalf of investors, who currently hold shares of Penn Virginia Corporation (NASDAQ: PVAC), was announced concerning whether the takeover of Penn Virginia Corporation is unfair to NASDAQ: PVAC stockholders.

Investors who purchased shares of Penn Virginia Corporation (NASDAQ: PVAC) and currently hold any of those NASDAQ: PVAC 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 Penn Virginia Corporation breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ: PVAC investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

On October 28, 2018, Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE: DNR) and Penn Virginia Corporation (NASDAQ: PVAC) announced that they have entered into a merger agreement pursuant to which Denbury will acquire Penn Virginia in a transaction valued at approximately $1.7 billion, including the assumption of debt. The consideration to be paid to Penn Virginia shareholders will consist of 12.4 shares of Denbury common stock and $25.86 of cash for each share of Penn Virginia common stock, or a value of approximately $79.80 per share.

However, given that at least one analyst has set the high target price for NASDAQ: PVAC shares at $108.00 per share, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NASDAQ: PVAC stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Penn Virginia Corporation 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.
