San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/13/2020 -- An investigation was announced concerning whether the takeover of Pope Resources, A Delaware Limited Partnership is unfair to NASDAQ: POPE stockholders.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Pope Resources, A Delaware Limited Partnership breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ: POPE investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

Poulsbo, WA based Pope Resources, A Delaware Limited Partnership manages timber resources in the United States. On January 15, 2020, Rayonier Inc. (NYSE:RYN) and Pope Resources, A Delaware Limited Partnership (NASDAQ:POPE) announced that they have entered into a merger agreement under which Rayonier will acquire all of the outstanding limited partnership units of Pope Resources for consideration consisting of equity and cash. Under the terms of the agreement, Pope Resources unitholders will have the right to elect to receive (i) 3.929 common shares of Rayonier, (ii) 3.929 units of Rayonier Operating Partnership LP, or (iii) $125 in cash in exchange for each unit of Pope Resources, subject to a proration mechanism as described below. Based on Rayonier's 10-day volume-weighted average price, the transaction values Pope Resources' limited partnership equity at $554 million, or $126.91 per unit (assuming 70% of the Pope Resources units are exchanged for equity consideration and 30% are exchanged for cash consideration).

However, the investigation concerns whether the offer is unfair to NASDAQ: POPE stockholders. More specifically, the investigation concerns whether the Pope Resources, A Delaware Limited 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 Pope Resources, A Delaware Limited Partnership (NASDAQ: POPE) shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
