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

San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2019 -- The takeover of SRC Energy Inc. is under investigation concerning whether it is unfair to NYSE: SRCI stockholders.

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

SRC Energy Inc., an oil and natural gas company, engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids primarily in the Denver-Julesburg Basin of Colorado.

On August 26, 2019, PDC Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PDCE) and SRC Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SRCI) announced they have entered into a merger agreement under which PDC will acquire SRC Energy, Inc. in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $1.7 billion, including SRC's net debt of approximately $685 million as of June 30, 2019. Under the terms of the agreement, SRC Energy, Inc. shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.158 PDC shares for each share of SRC common stock, representing an implied value of $3.99 per share based on the PDC closing price as of August 23, 2019.

However, given that at least one analyst has set the high target price for NYSE: SRCI shares at $10.00 per share and given that NYSE: SRCI shares reach in the open market as high as $13.32 per share in May 2018, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NYSE: SRCI stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the SRC 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.

SRC Energy Inc. reported that its annual Total Revenue rose from $362.51 million in 2017 to $645.64 million in 2018 and that its
