NEW YORK, Feb. 01, 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 Viela Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIE) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s acquisition by Horizon Therapeutics plc (NASDAQ: HZNP).

On February 1, 2021, Viela announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Horizon for approximately $3.05 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Viela stockholders will receive $53 in cash for each share of Viela common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the first quarter of 2021.

Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that Viela’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 Viela’s stockholders.
