Protective Life (PL) Shareholder Alert - Andrews & Springer LLC Is Seeking More Cash For Shareholders Of Protective Life Corporation

WILMINGTON, Del., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of Protective Life Corporation ("Protective Life" or the "Company") (NYSE: PL) relating to the sale of the Company to Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company Limited (TSE: 8750) ("Dai-ichi"). On June 3, 2014, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Dai-ichi will acquire Protective Life in a merger valued at roughly $5.7 billion. As a result of the merger, Protective Life shareholders are only anticipated to receive $70.00 per share in cash in exchange for each share of Protective Life they own.

Our investigation so far has revealed highly suspicious trading activity the day before the merger was announced. On June 2, 2014, the day before the merger was announced, over 5.8 million shares of Protective Life were traded. The consideration premium Protective Life shareholders are expected to receive is also marginal. While the Company touts that the merger reflects a 34% premium to Protective Life's closing price as of May 30, 2014, the $70.00 per share price only represents a 19.6% premium to Protective Life's closing price on June 2 nd.

Andrews & Springer is investigating whether Protective Life directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value.
