April 15, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK, April 15, 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 Weingarten Realty Investors (NYSE: WRI) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s acquisition by Kimco Realty Corporation (NYSE: KIM).

On April 15, 2021, Weingarten announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Kimco in a stock plus cash transaction. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Weingarten stockholders will receive 1.408 shares of Kimco common stock plus $2.89 in cash for each share of Weingarten common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the second half of 2021.

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