MILWAUKEE, Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- We are investigating the Board of Directors of Virgin Media Inc. ("Virgin") for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of Virgin to Liberty Global, Inc.

Virgin shareholders will receive $17.50 in cash, 0.2582 Liberty Global Series A shares and 0.1928 Liberty Global Series C shares for each Virgin share that they hold. The merger agreement unreasonably limits prospective bids for Virgin by (i) prohibiting solicitation of any further bids, and (ii) imposing a termination penalty should Virgin receive and accept a superior bid. Virgin insiders, their affiliates and other majority shareholders own significant voting stock of Virgin, and will receive tens of millions of dollars as part of change of control arrangements, and therefore can unduly influence a sale of Virgin not necessarily in the best interests of non-insider shareholders. In light of these facts, our investigation centers on the conduct of Virgin's Board of Directors, who have unanimously approved the transaction, and whether they are (i) fulfilling their fiduciary duties to all shareholders, and (ii) obtaining a fair and reasonable price for Virgin given its current financial condition and prospects.
