NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Centrix Bank & Trust ("Centrix" or the "Company") (OTC BB: CXBT) (ISIN: US15640A1016) (CUSIP: 15640A101) concerning the proposed acquisition of Centrix by Eastern Bank Corporation.
The investigation concerns whether the Centrix directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, shares of Centrix will be converted into the right to receive $41.00 in cash for each share of Centrix common stock. However, the Price to Net Income multiple is below the average of comparable transactions. Additionally, Centrix stock closed above the offer price, and its President will stay on with the new company.
Centrix shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at [email protected] or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
