(ECHO): Johnson Fistel Investigates Proposed Sale of Echo Global Logistics; Is $48.25 a Fair Price?

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Echo Global Logistics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ECHO) ("Echo" or the "Company") breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to The Jordan Company, L.P. ("TJC").

On September 10, 2021, Echo announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by funds managed by The Jordan Company, L.P. Under the terms of the agreement, Echo stockholders will receive $48.25 per share in cash.
