SHAREHOLDER ALERT: WeissLaw LLP Investigates VG Acquisition Corp.

NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --

WeissLaw LLP  is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of VG Acquisition Corp. ("VGAC" or the "Company") in connection with the Company's proposed merger with 23andMe, Inc. ("23andMe"), a privately-held consumer genetics and research company.  Under the terms of the merger agreement, VGAC will acquire 23andMe through a reverse merger that will result in 23andMe becoming a public company traded on the NYSE.  The transaction implies a total enterprise value of approximately $3.5 billion.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether VGAC's board acted in the best interest of VGAC's public shareholders in agreeing to the proposed transaction, whether the board was fully informed as to the valuation of 23andMe, and whether all information regarding the process undertaken by the board and the valuation of the transaction will be fully and fairly disclosed to VGAC's public shareholders.
