Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of GFI Group Inc.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 8, 2014-- Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of GFI Group Inc. (“GFI” or the “Company”) (NYSE:GFIG) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to CME Group Inc. (“CME”) for approximately $580 million. CME will also assume GFI's outstanding debt which is approximately $240 million, bringing the total value of the deal to $820 million. The Company's stockholders will only receive $4.55 for each share of GFI common stock they own. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target of $5.00 for the Company.

The investigation focuses on whether GFI's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company's stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of GFI's shareholders.
