Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Lawson Products, Inc. (NASDAQGS: LAWS) (“Lawson” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of the Company to TestEquity and Gexpro Services, two portfolio companies of private equity firm Luther King Capital Management Corporation (“LKCM”). On December 29, 2021, the parties announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which TestEquity and Gexpro will combine with Lawson in an all-stock merger. Upon completion of the merger, LKCM is expected to own 75% of the combined company, meanwhile Lawson’s minority shareholders are expected to be significantly diluted.
Our Firm's investigation so far has discovered that the process leading up to the announcement of the merger appears to have significant conflicts of interest, thus making the process and consideration unfair. Andrews & Springer is also investigating whether Lawson’s board of directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the company and maximize shareholder value. Our investigation is also looking into whether Lawson’s top executives were conflicted and acted in their own self-interest when approving the merger.
