NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Optimer Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Under the terms of the transaction, Optimer shareholders will receive $10.75 in cash for each share of Optimer stock they own. Optimer shareholders will also receive a Contingent Value Right entitling them to receive up to $5.00 for each share they own if certain net sales of the drug DIFICID are achieved. The investigation concerns whether the Optimer Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is underpaying for Optimer shares. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target of $25.00 per Optimer share.
