NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Coherent, Inc.

On January 19, 2021, Coherent announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Lumentum for approximately $5.7 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Coherent stockholders will receive $100 in cash and 1.1851 shares of Lumentum common stock for each share of Coherent common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the second half of 2021.

Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that Coherent’s board of directors oversaw an unfair process and ultimately agreed to an inadequate merger agreement. Accordingly, the firm is investigating all relevant aspects of the deal and is committed to securing the best result possible for Coherent’s stockholders.
