Brower Piven Announces Class Action Lawsuit in Connection With Claims of Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by the Board of Directors of Supertex, Inc. in Connection With the Sale of the Company to Microchip Technology Inc.

STEVENSON, Md. --(Business Wire)--

The securities litigation firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the California Superior Court, Santa Clara County, on behalf of all common stockholders of Supertex (News - Alert), Inc. ("Supertex" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: SUPX) asserting claims that the members of the Company's board of directors have breached fiduciary duties they owe to Supertex shareholders.

Supertex recently announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by Microchip Technology (News - Alert) Inc. ("icrochip"). According to the complaint, under the terms of the proposed transaction, Supertex shareholders will receive $33 for each share of Supertex stock they own. The claims asserted in the lawsuit concern whether the Company's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Microchip is underpaying for Supertex shares.
