TREAN SPECIAL ALERT: Julie & Holleman Investigates Potential Legal Claims Related to Proposed Controller Buyout of Trean Insurance Group, Inc.

PRNewswire 17-Mar-2023 7:30 AM

NEW YORK, March 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Julie & Holleman is investigating the proposed going-private acquisition of Trean Insurance Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:TIG) by Altaris, LLC, the company's controlling shareholder. Altaris seeks to buy Trean for $6.15 per share, yet financial analyses have valued the company as high as $8.34 per share.

Founded in 1996 as a reinsurance broker, Trean provides products and services to the specialty insurance market. The company has historically focused on underserved casualty markets like niche workers' compensation and small- to mid-sized insurance programs, where Trean's expertise helps it achieve higher rates. Trean has recently boasted about its promise for long-term growth. For example, in its most recent annual report, Trean said, "We believe many of our target markets are experiencing strong secular tailwinds and consequently are growing more quickly than the broader market."

Despite Trean's substantial upside, the company entered into a merger agreement in December, under which Altaris, which owns 47% of the company's stock, will acquire all the shares it does not already own for $6.15 per share. On March 16, 2023, Trean announced that the shareholder vote on the deal will occur on April 18, 2023.

Julie & Holleman is investigating potential legal claims available to Trean's shareholders regarding the proposed acquisition, including claims relating to potential conflicts resulting from the fact that Altaris all but the company it now wants to buy. Numerous members of Trean's board of directors were also designated by Altaris, which raises questions about the board's independence. Julie & Holleman is also concerned about the adequacy of the $6.15 per share acquisition price in light of the company's own statements about its growth trajectory. Moreover, Trean's own financial advisor, Houlihan Lokey, performed analyses suggesting that the company was worth up to $8.34 per share. Thus, it appears that Altaris is taking advantage of the short-term dip in Trean's stock price to scoop up the company at a steep discount.
