NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan & Morgan is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Epoch Holding Corporation ("Epoch") (EPHC) concerning the proposed acquisition of Epoch, the parent company of Epoch Investment Partners, by TD Bank Group ("TD Bank").

On December 6, 2012, Epoch announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by TD Bank in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $668 million. Under the terms of the agreement, Epoch's shareholders will receive $28.00 in cash for each share of Epoch stock owned.
