NEW YORK, May 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Barnes & Noble, Inc. (or the "Company") for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the proposed offer by Liberty Media Corporation to purchase the Company. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Barnes & Noble shareholders would receive $17 in cash per share of Barnes & Noble stock they own. The transaction would have a total value of approximately $1 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the Board of Barnes & Noble is acting in Barnes & Noble shareholders' best interests during the negotiations with Liberty Media Corporation. Liberty's offer is conditioned on top shareholder and founding Chairman Leonard Riggio keeping a stake in Barnes & Noble and staying involved in running the Company. Analysts have expressed that the Company is worth more than the $17 offer, and have put a price target on the Company's shares as high as $21 per share.
