San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2018 -- An investigation was announced for investors, who currently hold shares of A Schulman Inc (NASDAQ:SHLM), over whether the takeover of A Schulman Inc by LyondellBasell is unfair to NASDAQ:SHLM stockholders.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain directors of A Schulman Inc breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:SHLM investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

Fairlawn, OH based A. Schulman, Inc. is an international supplier of plastic formulations, resins and services, and provides solutions to its customers' requirements through custom-formulated products. On February 15, 2018, LyondellBasell (NYSE: LYB) and A. Schulman, Inc.(NASDAQ: SHLM) announced that they have entered into an agreement under which LyondellBasell will acquire A.

Schulman common stock for $42 per share in cash and one contingent value right per share and assume outstanding debt and certain other obligations.
