Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Launches An Investigation Against Penns Woods Bancorp Inc. (PWOD) For Potential Breaches Of Fiduciary Duties By Its Board Of Directors
Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Penns Woods Bancorp Inc. (“Penns Woods” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: PWOD) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders’ approval of the 2014 Penns Woods Bancorp, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan.
Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 27, 2014, the Board of Directors recommends that Penns Woods’s shareholders vote to approve the 2014 Penns Woods Bancorp, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan to authorize an increase of the total aggregate number of shares of the common stock by 12 ½ percent of the total issued and outstanding shares on April 30, 2014 (approximately 602,500 shares), which may be adjusted annually. The issuance of the additional shares could have a substantial dilutive effect on the shares of Penns Woods common stock.
