Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the acquisition of Harleysville Group Inc. (“Harleysville Group” or “HGIC”) (NASDAQ: HGIC) by Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company for Harleysville Group shareholders. Under the proposed buyout, Harleysville Group shareholders will receive only $60.00 in cash for each share of Harleysville Group/HGIC stock owned.

The definitive acquisition agreement involves an all cash transaction valued at approximately $1.63 billion. The transaction is expected to be completed in early 2012.

“We are investigating the fairness of the proposed transaction to Harleysville Group shareholders, whether the shareholders are being underpaid for their stock, and whether Harleysville Group’s Board of Directors acted in the shareholders’ best interest,” said shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe. “In particular, one of the key inquires in our investigation is whether the company conducted a fair and adequate process to determine the best price for the shareholders before agreeing to the acquisition terms. Our investigation will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders,” said Willie Briscoe.
