Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces the Investigation of FirstMerit Corporation (FMER) Over the Proposed Sale of the Company to Huntington Bancshares Incorporated

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of FirstMerit Corporation (“FirstMerit” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS:FMER) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Huntington Bancshares Incorporated for approximately $3.4 billion. 

The Company’s stockholders will only receive $5.00 in cash and 1.72 shares of Huntington common stock for each share of Company common stock they own, or approximately $19.21 per share based on the closing price on January 27, 2016. However, this consideration is below at least one analyst's price target of $22.86 per share and FirstMerit’s 52-week high of $21.49 per share.
