Under the terms of the transaction, SWS shareholders will receive only $1.94 in cash and 0.2496 shares of Hilltop common stock, for each share of SWS stock they own. The transaction values SWS stock at approximately $7.88 per share. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of SWS for not acting in the Company’s shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process as Hilltop beneficially owns 24% of SWS common stock and it has been reported that the Company had recently received an $8.00 bid that was rejected. In addition, the transaction may undervalue the Company as an analyst has set an $8.00 per share price target on SWS stock and SWS stock traded at $8.19 as recently as February 20, 2014.

If you own shares of SWS common stock and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of the proposed transaction, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
