Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Is Seeking More Cash For The Shareholders Of Somerset Hills Bancorp (SOMH)

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Somerset Hills Bancorp (“Somerset” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGM: SOMH) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct related to the sale of the Company to Lakeland Bancorp, Inc. (“Lakeland Bancorp”) (NasdaqGS: LBAI) in a cash-and-stock deal valued at approximately $64 million.  Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Somerset’s stockholders will receive either 1.1962 shares of Lakeland Bancorp common stock or $12.00 in cash for each share of Somerset they own.  90% of the aggregate merger consideration will be shares of Lakeland Bancorp common stock and 10% will be cash.

The investigation focuses on whether Somerset’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to conduct an adequate and fair sales process prior to agreeing to this proposed transaction, whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of Somerset’s shareholders.
