Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Sculptor Capital Management, Inc. (NYSE: SCU) (“Sculptor Capital” or the “Company”) relating to the sale of Sculptor Capital to Rithm Capital Corp. (“Rithm”). On July 24, 2023, the two parties announced that they reached an agreement in principle pursuant to which Rithm will acquire Sculptor Capital. As a result of the merger, Sculptor Capital shareholders are only anticipated to receive $11.15 per share in cash in exchange for each Class A share of Sculptor Capital.
Our Firm's investigation so far has discovered that the merger appears to have significant conflicts of interest, thus making the process and consideration unfair. For example, certain Sculptor Capital insiders are rolling over a portion of their equity into the combined company while Sculptor Capital’s public shareholders are receiving $11.15 per share in cash with no upside in the combined company. In fact, the $11.15 per share consideration represents a 2.19% discount to the Company’s 52-week high $11.40 per share. The $11.15 per share price is also below the $14.00 per share target price set by Credit Suisse on May 4, 2023, just months before the merger was announced.
