The claims concern whether the Graham Packaging Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to Graham Packaging stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether Silgan Holdings Inc. is underpaying for Graham Packaging shares. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target of $22.00 per share. Furthermore, on June 13, 2011 the Company announced that it received from an unnamed entity an unsolicited buyout offer at $25 per share.
A complaint challenging the transaction was filed in The Court of Common Pleas of Pennsylvania.
