NEW YORK, April 11, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of American Medical Systems Holdings, Inc. ("American Medical" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:AMMD) concerning the proposed acquisition of American Medical by Endo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. ("Endo") in a cash transaction valued at $2.9 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, Endo will pay $30 per share for American Medical's outstanding stock and convertible securities, and assume and pay off $312 million of American Medical's debt. Endo will gain what it said are promising medical services and devices in line with its urology and pain treatments. The investigation concerns, among other things, possible breaches of fiduciary duty by the Company's officers and directors. Endo may be underpaying for American Medical thus unlawfully harming American Medical shareholders.
