SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Announces Investigation into
Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by the Board of Firstbank Corporation
NEW YORK -- August 16, 2013
Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Firstbank
Corporation (NasdaqGS: FBMI) (“Firstbank” or “the Company”) for possible
breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection
with the sale of the Company to Mercantile Bank Corp. (NasdaqGS: MBWM).

http://zlk.9nl.com/firstbank-fbmi/, or call: 877-363-5972. There is no cost or
obligation to you.
Under the terms of the transaction, Firstbank shareholders will receive one
share of Mercantile common stock for each share of Firstbank common stock they
own. This represents a value of approximately $18.77 per share. Upon
completion of the merger, Firstbank shareholders will own 48% of the
post-merger company. The investigation concerns whether the Firstbank Board of
Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to
adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the transaction, and
whether Mercantile Bank Corporation is underpaying for Firstbank, thus
unlawfully harming Firstbank shareholders.
