Poshmark Investigation Statements
“Ademi LLP alleges Poshmark’s financial outlook and prospects are excellent and yet shareholders will receive only $17.90 in cash, representing an enterprise value of approximately $1.2 billion. The transaction agreement unreasonably limits competing bids by imposing a significant penalty if Poshmark accepts a superior bid. Poshmark insiders will receive substantial benefits as part of a change of control arrangements.
We are investigating the conduct of Poshmark’s board of directors, and whether they are (i) fulfilling their fiduciary duties to all shareholders, and (ii) obtaining a fair and reasonable price for Poshmark.

“Weiss Law is investigating whether (i) Poshmark’s board of directors acted in the best interests of Company shareholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction, (ii) the $17.90 per-share merger consideration adequately compensates Poshmark’s shareholders, and (iii) all information regarding the sales process and valuation of the transaction will be fully and fairly disclosed.
