Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of The Ryland Group, Inc. ("Ryland" or "the Company") (NYSE: RYL) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the merger of the Company with Standard Pacific Corp. ("Standard Pacific").

Under the terms of the transaction, Ryland shareholders will receive only 1.0191 shares of Standard Pacific common stock for each Ryland share they own. This would also equal 5.0957 Ryland shares prior to giving effect to the announced 1 for 5 reverse stock split. The transaction values Ryland stock at only approximately $42.60 per share. The investigation concerns whether the Board of Ryland breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders and whether Standard Pacific is underpaying for Ryland. The transaction may undervalue Ryland and will result in a loss for many Ryland shareholders. For example, Ryland stock traded at $49.21 per share as recently as April 8, 2015 and an analyst has set a $55.00 per share price target for Ryland stock.
