Power-One shareholder files suit over company's sale to ABB

A shareholder of Power-One Inc. has sued the company’s directors, claiming the $6.35 a share price paid by ABB (NYSE: ABB) for the company is too low, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The shareholder, Alejandro Becerra-Arteaga, said the company’s board breached its fiduciary duty by accepting the proposal, according to the report.
