Under the proposed agreement, a subsidiary of ASSA ABLOY will commence a cash tender offer to acquire LaserCard’s outstanding shares of common stock at $6.25 per share, net to each holder in cash.

The investigation concerns whether LaserCard’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best price possible for LaserCard’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with ASSA ABLOY.
