Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Covetrus, Inc. breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R) and TPG Capital.

The investigation concerns whether the Covetrus 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 Covetrus shares of common stock, especially given the Company’s projected revenue and earnings growth.
