The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Hittite Microwave breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:HITT investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:HITT stockholders by agreeing to sell Hittite Microwave Corp too cheaply via an unfair process to Analog Devices, Inc..

Indeed, Hittite Microwave Corp reported that its annual Total Revenue rose from $264.39 million in 2012 to $273.81 million in 2013 and that its respective Net Income increased from $68.57 million to $69.99 million.
