Law Firm Brower Piven Announces Investigation of Inhibitex, Inc.

The law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Inhibitex, Inc. (“Inhibitex”) (Nasdaq: INHX) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Inhibitex relating to the proposed acquisition of the company by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (“Bristol-Myers”). The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the board breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.

On January 9, 2012, Inhibitex and Bristol-Myers announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement. According to the announcement, Bristol-Myers will acquire all of the shares of Inhibitex common stock in a two step merger - beginning with a tender offer - for $26.00 per share or approximately $2.5 billion total in cash. Furthermore, the press release states that shareholders owning 17 percent of Inhibitex’s stock have already agreed to support the merger.
