Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of SWS Group, Inc. (“SWS” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SWS) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Hilltop Holdings Inc. (“Hilltop”) (NYSE: HTH), in a transaction valued at approximately $260 million.

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of SWS would receive 0.2496 shares of Hilltop common stock and $1.94 in cash for each share of SWS they own. Based on Hilltop’s closing stock price on March 31, 2014, SWS shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $7.88 per share.

The investigation concerns whether SWS’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for SWS’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Hilltop. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for SWS stock at $8.00 per share.

If you own the common stock of SWS and purchased your shares before April 1, 2014, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
