consideration, $2.00 will be held in an escrow account and will be available
to cover losses from stockholder claims for one year or until the final
resolution of such claims, if later. The investigation concerns whether the
Atlantic Coast Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to Atlantic
Coast stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering
into this transaction and whether Bond Street Holdings, Inc. is underpaying
for Atlantic Coast shares, thus unlawfully harming Atlantic Coast
stockholders. In particular, Atlantic Coast has a reported a book value of
$16.96 per share for the most recent quarter.
