White River Capital Investor Alert: Briscoe Law Firm And Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale To Parthenon Capital Partners

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of White River Capital, Inc. (“White River”) (NYSE MKT: RVR) and its subsidiary Coastal Credit, LLC to an affiliate of Parthenon Capital Partners for shareholders. Under the proposed deal valued at approximately $79.5 million, White River shareholders will only receive $21.93 in cash for each share of White River stock owned, well below the 52-week high of $27.80.

The White River sale investigation centers on whether White River’s shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues White River’s stock, and whether White River’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “Based upon the recent performance of the company and other factors, we believe that this transaction may undervalue White River stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
