  WeissLaw LLP Investigates First M&F Corporation Acquisition

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- February 8, 2013

WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with
offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches
of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of
First M&F Corporation (“M&F” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FMFC) arising from its
agreement for M&F to be acquired by Renasant Corporation (“Renasant”). Under
the terms of the proposed transaction, M&F shareholders will receive a fixed
.6425 shares of Renasant common stock for each share of M&F stock they own,
representing a value of approximately $12.35 per share, based on Renasant’s
average ten-day closing price ended February 4, 2013.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether M&F’s Board acted in the best interests
of its public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize
shareholder value for M&F’s public shareholders, prior to entering into the
proposed transaction with Renasant. M&F recently announced its results for
2012 reporting net income of $6.985 million, or $0.54 basic and diluted
earnings per share, as compared to net income of $4.373 million, or $0.28
basic and diluted earnings per share, for 2011, a 93% improvement in common
earnings per share. If you own M&F shares and would like more information
about your rights as a shareholder or additional information concerning our
investigation, please contact Kelly C. Keenan either by telephone at (888)
593-4771 or by email at info@weisslawllp.com.
