Barrack, Rodos & Bacine Continues Its Investigation of Acacia Research Corp. (NASDAQ: ACTG) For Potential Investor Claims

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barrack, Rodos & Bacine is continuing its investigation of Acacia Research Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTG) based on issues arising from its recapitalization agreement with Starboard Value LP, entered into on October 30, 2022, which was stated to include a rights offering to existing shareholders to purchase additional shares of Acacia common stock to be launched on January 15, 2023, but which has been delayed for more than two weeks now without explanation; the claimed “resignation” of Acacia’s former CEO on November 2, 2022, which its former CEO is currently disputing in Court; the resignation of its former CFO on January 3, 2023; and certain other actions that appear to be more favorable to Starboard and unfavorable to Acacia’s public shareholders.

The investigation primarily concerns whether the recapitalization, the former CEO’s removal, and the CFO’s resignation comply with Delaware law, which is Acacia’s state of incorporation.
