An investigation on behalf of investors of Jagged Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: JAG) in connection with the proposed takeover was announced and NYSE: JAG stockholders should contact the Shareholders Foundation.

San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2019 -- The takeover of Jagged Peak Energy Inc. is under investigation on concerning whether it is unfair to NYSE: JAG stockholders.

Investors who purchased shares of Jagged Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: JAG) and currently hold any of those NYSE: JAG 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 directors of Jagged Peak Energy Inc. breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE: JAG investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

Denver, CO based Jagged Peak Energy Inc. operates as an independent oil and natural gas company.

On October 14, 2019, Parsley Energy, Inc. (NYSE: PE) and Jagged Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: JAG) announced they have entered into a merger agreement under which Parsley will acquire Jagged Peak in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $2.27 billion, including Jagged Peak's net debt of approximately $625 million as of June 30, 2019. Under the terms of the agreement, Jagged Peak shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.447 shares of Parsley Class A common stock for each share of Jagged Peak common stock they own. This represents $7.59 per Jagged Peak share based on Parsley's closing price on October 11, 2019.

However, given that at least one analyst has set the high target price for NYSE: JAG shares at $14.00 per share and given that NYSE: JAG shares reached in early 2018 as high as $16.33 per share, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSE: JAG stockholders.

In addition, given that Jagged Peak Energy Inc's controlling shareholder, Quantum Energy Partners, which owns approximately 68 percent of the outstanding voting shares of Jagged Peak, has already committed to vote its shares in favor of the transaction, the investigation concerns whether the Jagged Peak Energy 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.

Those who are current investors in Jagged Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: JAG) shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
