HORTONWORKS, INC. SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Former SEC Attorney Willie Briscoe Investigates Sale to Cloudera, Inc.

ACCESSWIRE

By The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 11, 2018 / Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Hortonworks, Inc. (“Hortonworks”) (NASDAQ: HDP) concerning the sale to Cloudera, Inc. (“Cloudera”) (CLDR). Under the terms of the agreement, Hortonworks shareholders will only receive 1.305 shares of Cloudera common stock for each share owned. Based on the closing price of Cloudera before the deal was announced, the consideration is valued at $21.83 per share, which is virtually no premium over the 52-week high and lower than at least one analyst’s estimated value of $36.00 per share.

If you are an affected investor, and you want to learn more about the investigation or if you have information that you believe would be helpful to our investigation of the fairness of the proposed transaction, contact Willie Briscoe at The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC via email at shareholders@thebriscoelawfirm.com or by calling (888) 809-2750. There is no cost or fee to you.

The investigation centers on whether the Board of Directors of Hortonworks is acting in the shareholders’ best interests, whether the board considered alternatives to the acquisition, and whether the board has employed an adequate process to review and act on the proposed transaction. Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance believes the true inherent value of the stock could be as high as $36.00.
