Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of SWS would receive $7.00 per share in 50% cash and 50% Hilltop stock for each share of SWS they own.

The investigation concerns the SWS’s board of directors’ process for consideration of the proposed transaction, whether the Company is acting in its shareholders’ best interests and whether the proposed consideration to be paid to SWS’s shareholders would be fair and adequate.
