NEW YORK, Aug 16, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Tripp Levy PLLC is investigating the proposed acquisition of Prospect Medical Holdings, Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!pzz/quotes/nls/pzz (PZZ 8.50, -0.03, -0.35%) . Prospect Medical announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by an entity sponsored by Leonard Green & Partners, L.P. in which certain stockholders of Prospect will also participate. Under the terms of the transaction, Prospect Medical shareholders will receive $8.50 in cash for each Prospect Medical share of common stock they own for a total transaction value of approximately $363 million, including the assumption of debt.
Certain directors and officers of Prospect Medical that own approx. 50% of Prospect's shares have entered into a voting agreement in which they have agreed to vote in favor of the transaction. These stockholders also have agreed to exchange approximately 6.2 million of their Prospect shares for equity interests in the sponsored purchasing entity in lieu of their receipt of the cash merger consideration for those shares.
