The Law Firm of Wohl & Fruchter Commences Investigation into Proposed Buyout of CreXus Investment Corp. by Annaly Capital Management, Inc.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The law firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP has commenced an investigation into the offer extended by Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (Annaly) to acquire CreXus Investment Corp. (CreXus) (NYS: CXS) .
Annaly currently owns about 12% of CreXus. On November 12, 2012, CreXus announced that it had received a proposal from Annaly to acquire the remaining shares of CreXus that Annaly does not already own for $12.50 per share in cash, a premium of only 13% to CreXus's closing price on Friday, November 9, 2012.
Annaly's wholly owned subsidiary, Fixed Income Discount Advisory Co. (FIDAC) manages CreXus, and two of FIDAC's employees are on CreXus' board of directors.
Wohl & Fruchter's investigation concerns the fairness of the buyout offer and the process to be used by CreXus to evaluate the offer in light of the conflicts of interest posed by Annaly's existing ownership stake in CreXus and FIDAC's management of CreXus.

Persons with relevant information, and CreXus shareholders with questions about this investigation, are invited to contact our Firm.
