Komlossy Law, P.A. is investigating the Board of Directors of Sterling Bancorp
(“Sterling” or the “Company”) (NYSE:STL) for possible breaches of fiduciary
duty and other violations of state law in connection with their attempt to

a transaction valued at approximately $344 million. Pursuant to the terms of
the proposed transaction, Sterling shareholders are to receive 1.2625 shares
of Provident stock for each share of the Company. The consideration is valued
