SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Announces The Investigation Of Protective Life Corporation In Connection With The Proposed Sale Of The Company To Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company, Limited

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty to current shareholders of Protective Life Corporation (“Protective Life” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PL) and other violations of state law by the board of directors of Protective Life relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company, Limited (“Dai-ichi Life”), in a transaction valued at approximately $5.7 billion.

Under the terms of the transaction, public shareholders of Protective Life would receive $70.00 per unit in cash for each share of Protective Life they own.
