NEW YORK, June 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Gerber Scientific Inc. ("Gerber" or the "Company") for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Vector Capital Corp. Under the terms of the transaction, Gerber shareholders will receive $11.00 per share of Gerber stock they own. Gerber shareholders also will receive a non-transferable right to receive cash payments in the future, contingent upon possible recoveries resulting from certain patent litigation claims (U.S. Patent 5,537,135). The transaction has a total approximate value of $281.8 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Gerber Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to Gerber stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether Vector Capital Corp. is underpaying for Gerber shares, thus unlawfully harming Gerber stockholders. Recently, analysts have given the Company a target price as high as $11.00 per share, thus the proposed deal price offers Gerber shareholders little, if any, true premium to the market price of the Company's shares.
