Business Wire

NEW YORK -- February 19, 2013

Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of
Directors of Artio Global Investors Inc. (“Artio” or the “Company”) (NYSE:
ART) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Aberdeen Asset
Management PLC (“Aberdeen”). Under the terms of the agreement, Aberdeen will
acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Artio for $2.75 per share in
cash, for a total transaction value of approximately $165 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Artio Board of Directors violated its
fiduciary duties by agreeing to this transaction and whether the proposed
$2.75 per share consideration adequately values Artio common shares. The offer
price represents a 34% premium to the price of shares on February 13, 2013,
the day before the deal was announced. As recently as October 2012, however,
the stock was trading higher than the offer price. Further, the owners of 45
percent of the Company’s stock have agreed to vote in favor of the
transaction.
