NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Pharmaceutical Product Development, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPDI) (“PPDI”) arising from its proposed acquisition by affiliates of the Carlyle Group and Hellman & Friedman in an all cash transaction valued at approximately $3.9 billion. Under the terms of the transaction, PPDI shareholders will receive $33.25 per share.
