The Law Office Of James C. Kelly Announces Investigation Into Possible Breaches Of Fiduciary Duty By The Board Of Advance America, Cash Advance Centers, Inc. With The Sale Of The Company To The Grupo Elektra

NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Office of James C. Kelly is investigating the Board of Directors of Advance America, Cash Advance Centers, Inc. ("Advance America" or the "Company") (NYSE: AEA) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Grupo Elektra, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: ELEKTRA.MX).  Under the terms of the transaction, Advance America shareholders will receive $10.50 for each share of Advance America stock they own.  The total transaction value is approximately $780 million, including the Company's outstanding debt as of December 31, 2011.

It is expected that Patrick O'Shaughnessy, Advance America's President and Chief Executive Officer, and other members of senior management will continue in their roles with the Company after the acquisition is completed.

The investigation concerns whether Advance America's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the company before entering into this transaction and whether Grupo Elektra is underpaying for Advance America shares, thus unlawfully harming stockholders.  Indeed, at least one analyst has projected that the true going forward inherent value of the company is worth at least $11 per share.

If you own shares of Advance America and wish to obtain additional information, contact The Law Office of James C. Kelly.  Please contact James C. Kelly, Esq., by telephone at (888) 643-7517 or e-mail at jkelly@jckellylaw.com.
