Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims on Behalf of Investors of Duf & Phelps
Corporation -- DUF

NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford
Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Duf &
Phelps Corporation (ISIN:US26433B1070) ("Duf" or the "Company") concerning the
proposed acquisition of Duf by a consortium of affiliates for The Carlyle
Group, Stone Point Capital LLC, Pictet & Cie and Edmond de Rothschild Group.
The consortium will acquire Duf in a transaction valued at approximately
$665.5 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Duf directors are breaching their
fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize
shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Duf shareholders would
receive $15.55 per share in cash per share of common stock. However, price to
EBITDA, net income and other multiples are below the average of comparable
transactions. Further, at least one research analyst has set a target share
price of $16.00 per share.

Duf shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised
to contact Gustavo Bruckner at gfbruckner@pomlaw.com, 212-661-1100 or
888-476-6529, ext. 302.
