  Investigate Sale to Aberdeen Asset Management

Business Wire

DALLAS -- February 15, 2013

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are
investigating the sale of Artio Global Investors, Inc. (“Artio”) (NYSE: ART)
to Aberdeen Asset Management PLC for shareholders. Under the terms of the
proposed sale valued at approximately $175 million, Artio shareholders will
receive $2.75 in cash for each share of Artio stock owned, well below the
52-week high of $5.26.

The Artio sale investigation centers on whether Artio’s shareholders are
receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed acquisition
of the Company, whether the transaction undervalues Artio’s stock, and whether
Artio’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders
prior to agreeing to the deal. According to shareholder rights attorney
Patrick Powers, “Based on the historical prices, the proposed sale price and
other factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue Artio’s stock. Our
proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all
shareholders.”
