San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/23/2019 -- An investigation was announced over whether the takeover of Milacron Holdings Corp. is unfair to NYSE: MCRN stockholders.

Investors who purchased shares of Milacron Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MCRN) and currently hold any of those NYSE: MCRN 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 Milacron Holdings breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE: MCRN investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

Cincinnati, OH based Milacron Holdings Corp. manufactures, distributes, and services engineered and customized systems within the plastic technology and processing industry in the United States and internationally.

On July 12, 2019, Hillenbrand, Inc. (NYSE: HI) and Milacron Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MCRN) announced that they have entered into an agreement under which Hillenbrand, Inc. will acquire Milacron Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MCRN) in a cash and stock transaction valued at approximately $2 billion, including net debt of approximately $686 million as of March 31, 2019. Under the terms of the agreement, Milacron Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MCRN) stockholders will receive $11.80 in cash and a fixed exchange ratio of 0.1612 shares of Hillenbrand common stock for each share of Milacron Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MCRN) common stock they own. Based on Hillenbrand's closing stock price on July 11, 2019, the last trading day prior to the announcement, the implied cash and stock consideration to be received by Milacron Holdings Corp. (NYSE: MCRN) stockholders is $18.07 per share

More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Milacron Holdings 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.
