The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of 1st United Bancorp, Inc. (“1st United” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: FUBC) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of 1st United relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Valley National Bancorp (“Valley”).
Under the terms of the transaction, public shareholders of 1st United would receive 0.89 shares of Valley common stock for each share of 1st United they own. Based on Valley’s closing stock price on May 7, 2014, 1st United shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $8.69 per share. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s board of directors breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Valley is underpaying for 1st United shares.
