SHIRE SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Former SEC Attorney Willie Briscoe and Powers Taylor LLP Believe the Buyout of Shire by AbbVie May be Unfair to Shareholders

DALLAS --(Business Wire)--

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Shire plc ("Shire") (NasdaqGS: SHPG) concerning the buyout by AbbVie. Under the terms of the merger, which is valued at approximately $54.7 billion, Shire shareholders will receive a combination of cash and stock valued at about 53.19 pounds, which equates to $91.07 USD, for each share owned. This consideration is well below the 52-week high of $257.95 USD and at least oneanalyst's estimated value of $280.00 USD.


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, (214) 239-4568, or via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com, or Patrick Powers at Powers Taylor LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at shareholder@powerstaylor.com. There is no cost or fee to you.

The investigation centers on whether Shire's Board of Directors is acting in the shareholders' best interests, whether the board is properly negotiating a higher share price for the shareholders, 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 Shire could be as high as $280 USD per share.
