The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional
Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of
fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of
Directors of NB&T Financial Group Inc. ("NB&T" or "the Company")
(Nasdaq: NBTF) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Peoples
Bancorp Inc. ("Peoples").
On August 4, 2014 NB&T and Peoples announced the signing of a definitive
merger agreement pursuant to which Peoples will acquire NB&T through a
stock and cash merger.
Under the terms of the transaction, NB&T shareholders are anticipated to
receive 0.9319 shares of Peoples common stock and $7.75 i cash for each
share of NB&T common stock they own. The firm's investigation seeks to
determine, among other things, whether the Company's Board of Directors
breached their fiduciary duties by failing to maximize shareholder value
before agreeing to enter into the transaction, and whether Peoples is
underpaying for NB&T shares.
