However, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:WBSN stockholders arising out of the attempt to sell Websense, Inc too cheaply via an unfair process to Vista Equity Partners.
The plaintiffs says that the $24.75-offer is unfair to NASDAQ:WBSN stockholders and undervalues the company.
