  KBW Investor Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale
  to Stifel Financial

Business Wire

DALLAS -- November 05, 2012

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are
investigating the sale of KBW, Inc. (“KBW”) (NYSE: KBW) to Stifel Financial
for shareholders. Under the proposed deal valued at approximately $575
million, KBW shareholders will only receive consideration of $17.50 per share
of KBW stock owned, comprised of $10.00 per share in cash and $7.50 per share
of Stifel common stock. Notably, the proposed sale price is well below at
least one analyst’s estimated value of $22.00 per share.

The KBW sale investigation centers on whether KBW’s shareholders are receiving
adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction
undervalues KBW’s stock, and whether KBW’s board attempted to obtain the
highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal.
According to an analyst with Yahoo! Finance, the true inherent value of KBW
could be as high as $22.00 per share, well above the proposed price of $17.50.
Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “we believe that this
transaction may undervalue KBW’s stock, so our lawsuit will seek to obtain the
highest share price for all shareholders.”
