The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Cash America International, Inc. ("Cash America" or the "Company") (NYSE: CSH) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by First Cash Financial Services, Inc. ("First Cash").

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Cash America will receive 0.84 shares of First Cash for each share of Cash America they own. Based on First Cash's closing stock price on April 27, 2016, Cash America shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $40.90 per share.

The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company's Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company's shares of common stock, especially given that according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for Cash America stock at $43.00 per share.
