Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of Metro Bancorp, Inc. (METR) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to F.N.B. Corporation
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Metro Bancorp, Inc. (“Metro” or the “Company”) (NSADAQ:METR) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to F.N.B. Corporation for approximately $474 million in an all-stock transaction.
Under the terms of the merger agreement, which has been approved by the board of directors of each company, shareholders of Metro will be entitled to receive 2.373 shares of FNB common stock for each common share of Metro. This is approximately $31.98 per share using the opening stock price of FNB as of Monday, August 3, 2015
However, the offer represents a negligible premium compared to the opening price of $30.54 per share on August 7, 2015 and is below at least one analyst target price of $38.00 per share.
