Arby's Buying Buffalo Wild Wings In $2.9B Deal

29 November 2017

On November 28, 2017, Buffalo Wild Wings announced that it had signed a definitive merger agreement with Arby's. The total value of the agreement is $2.9 billion when including BWLD's net debt. But the chain has suffered with a trend away from casual dining, competition from other restaurants and an increase in the cost of chicken wings, CNN Money reported.

The investigation concerns whether the Buffalo Wild Wings board failed to satisfy its duties to the Company shareholders, including whether the board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the board obtained the best price possible for Buffalo Wild Wings shares of common stock. Goldman Sachs provided financial advice to Buffalo Wild Wings, while Faegre Baker Daniels was its legal counsel.
