Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Taylor Capital Group, Inc. (“Taylor” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TAYC) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by MB Financial, Inc. (“MB”) (NASDAQ: MBFI). Under the terms of the transaction, all of the outstanding Taylor common stock and non-voting preferred stock will be converted into the right to receive 0.64318 shares of MB common stock and $4.08 in cash, for total consideration of $22.20 per share as of the date of the announcement.
