Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation of Phase Forward Incorporated April 16, 2010 11:20 AM Eastern Daylight Time WILMINGTON, Del.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Phase Forward Incorporated (“Phase Forward” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PFWD) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Oracle in a transaction valued at approximately $685 million. Under the proposed agreement, Oracle will pay Phase Forward shareholders $17.00 per share for each share of Phase Forward common stock outstanding. The investigation concerns whether Phase Forward’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best price possible for Phase Forward’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with Oracle. As recent as February 4, 2010, the Company announced its fourth quarter and 2009 year end results wherein Bob Weiler, Phase Forward’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “[t]he fourth quarter was a strong finish to a successful year for Phase Forward and was highlighted by revenue growth and non- GAAP operating income that was at the high-end of our guidance.” Indeed, at least one analyst has set a price target for Phase Forward of $18.00 per share. If you own the common stock of Phase Forward and purchased your shares before April 15, 2010, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
