Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of BigBand Networks, Inc. (“BigBand” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: BBND) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by ARRIS Group, Inc. (“ARRIS”) in a transaction with an approximate diluted equity value of approximately $172 million, or $53 million net of estimated BigBand cash on hand.

Under the proposed agreement, ARRIS will commence a tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of BigBand common stock within 10 business days. BigBand shareholders will receive $2.24 per share in cash for all outstanding shares of BigBand common stock tendered in the offer.

The investigation concerns whether BigBand’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain the best price possible for BigBand’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with ARRIS. Indeed, Redpoint Ventures and ValueAct Capital Partners, holders of 32% of the outstanding shares of BigBand, have agreed to tender their shares in the offer and to vote their shares in favor of the merger agreement and against any other transaction. Moreover, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a $2.75 per share stock price for BigBand stock.

Indeed, as recent as July 25, 2011, BigBand announced its second quarter 2011 financial results wherein Company President and CEO, Amir Bassan-Eskanzi commented on BigBand’s progress in its growth initiatives. He stated: “In the quarter, we made good progress in our growth initiatives, including a major win for our new MSP platform with AT&T. This win validates the MSP’s highly-differentiated advertising capabilities and position in IP Video and opens new opportunities with telco and cable customers[.]”
