  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) July 14, 2010 - Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the proposed merger transaction between Aon Corporation ("Aon") (NYSE: AON) and Hewitt Associates, Inc. ("Hewitt" or the "Company") in which AON is offering to pay Hewitt shareholders approximately $50 per share in a combination of $25.61 in cash and 0.6362 percent of AON common stock. The transaction is valued at approximately $4.9 billion, and is expected to close by about October 2010.

    The investigation concerns whether Hewitt's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether Aon is aiding and abetting by underpaying for Hewitt shares, thus unlawfully harming Hewitt's stockholders. At least one analyst set a target price for Hewitt stock at $55.00 per share. Also, Hewitt apparently has not shopped itself to other potential bidders, and Russ Fradin, Hewitt's CEO, will serve as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the combined company.
