(AVLR): Johnson Fistel, Globally-Recognized Law Firm Investigates Proposed Sale of Avalara; Is $93.50 a Fair Price?

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Avalara, Inc. (NYSE: AVLR) breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”).

On August 8, 2022, Avalara announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Vista, in an all-cash transaction; Avalara stockholders would receive $93.50 per share in cash. Upon completion of the transaction, Avalara would become a privately held company.

The investigation concerns whether the Avalara board failed to satisfy its duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for Avalara shares of common stock.

Nationally recognized, Johnson Fistel is investigating whether the proposed deal represents adequate consideration, especially given next year's revenue projections. The 52-week high for Avalara was $191.67.
