WeissLaw LLP Investigates First California Financial Group, Inc.
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm
with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible
breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of
Directors of First California Financial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: FCAL)
arising from its agreement for First California to be acquired by
PacWest Bancorp (NASDAQ: PACW), in a stock-for-stock deal valued at
approximately $231 million based on First California's closing stock
price on November 6, 2012. The proposed transaction values First
California at $8.00 a share.
WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether First California's Board is acting
to maximize shareholder value for First California's public shareholders
in approving this deal and whether the Board engaged in a robust sale
process in shopping the company. For the third quarter 2012, First
California reported net income of $3.5 millin, compared with $2.5
million for the same quarter in 2011. Additionally, net income available
to common shareholders was $3.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share,
compared with $900,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the third
quarter 2011. If you own First California shares and would like more
