COLONIAL FINANCIAL INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Colonial Financial Services, Inc. (COBK) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Cape Bancorp, Inc. (CBNJ)

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 Colonial Financial Services, Inc. (“Colonial Bank” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: COBK) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Cape Bancorp, Inc. (“Cape”) for approximately $55 million, based on Cape’s September 9, 2014 closing stock price of $10.06. The Company’s stockholders will elect to receive either $14.50 per share in cash, or 1.412 shares of Capes’ common stock, with 50% of the shares being exchanged for stock and 50% for cash. Colonial Bank has traded as high as $15.00 over the past year, representing a 50 cent premium over the expected deal price.

The investigation focuses on whether Colonial Bank’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of Colonial Bank’s shareholders.
