Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of National Penn Bancshares, Inc. (NPBC) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to BB&T Corporation
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of National Penn Bancshares Inc. (“National Penn” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS:NPBC) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to BB&T Corporation for approximately $1.8 billion.
The Company’s stockholders may elect to receive 0.3206 of a share of BB&T common stock or $13.00 in cash for each share of Company common stock they own. However, the offer represents a negligible premium over the Company’s opening price per share of $12.53 on August 20, 2015 and the stock is expected to continue climbing.
