NEW YORK, May 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of Volcom, Inc. ("Volcom" or the "Company") concerning the proposed acquisition of Volcom by PPR in an all-cash transaction valued at $607.5 million.

The investigation concerns whether the board of directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Volcom shareholders will receive $24.50 per share. At least one analyst has valued the stock as high as $25.00 per share. Further, certain Volcom directors and officers who collectively own 14.4% of the outstanding shares have agreed to tender all of their shares in the tender offer, precluding shareholder participation going forward.

Volcom shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Gustavo Bruckner, Esq. at gfbruckner@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or toll free at 888-476-6529, ext. 302.
