San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2018 -- An investigation was announced for investors, who currently hold shares of Ply Gem Holdings Inc (NYSE:PGEM), concerning whether the takeover of Ply Gem Holdings Inc. by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice is unfair.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Ply Gem Holdings Inc breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:PGEM investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
