INVESTOR ALERT Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Announces Investigation of HASTINGS ENTERTAINMENT, INC. and Its Board of Directors in Relation to the Sale of the Company to Draw Another Circle, LLC & Hendrix Acquisition Corp. -- HAST

NEW YORK, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky commenced an investigation of Board of Directors of Hastings Entertainment, Inc. ("Hastings") (NasdaqCM: HAST) in relation to the sale of the Company to Draw Another Circle, LLC and Hendrix Acquisition Corp., companies owned directly or indirectly by Joel Weinshanker. Mr. Weinshanker is also sole shareholder of National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc., which holds approximately 12% of Hastings' outstanding shares. Furthermore, Mr. John H. Marmaduke, Hastings' Chairman and CEO, has agreed to tender his shares; this results in a combined 44% of the Company's outstanding shares committed to vote for the merger.

Under the terms of the deal, Hastings shareholders will receive $3.00 for each share of Hastings stock they own. The investigation concerns whether the Hastings Board breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Mr. Weinshanker is taking advantage of his position to purchase the Company at an unfair price. In particular, Hastings has a reported book value of $7.57 per share for the most recent quarter, and at least one analyst set a price target at $5.00 per share.
