NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of SWS Group, Inc. ("SWS" or the "Company") (NYSE: SWS) (ISIN: US78503N1072) (CUSIP: 78503N107) concerning Esposito Global's proposal to acquire SWS's outstanding common shares for $8.00 in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the SWS directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Although Esposito Global's proposal represents a 14.3% premium above the proposal offered by Hilltop Holdings, Inc. on January 20, 2014, the price to EBITDA, Revenue, and Book Value multiples are below the averages of comparable transactions
SWS shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at email@example.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
