Brian Levy Files a Putative Class Action Lawsuit against Hampden Bancorp, Inc., its Board of Directors, and Berkshire Hills Bancorp, Inc

On or about February 11, 2015, a purported stockholder of Hampden Bancorp, Inc. filed a putative class action lawsuit in the Superior Court of Massachusetts for Hampden County against Hampden, its board of directors, and Berkshire Hills Bancorp, Inc., captioned Brian Levy v. Hampden Bancorp, Inc. et al. The lawsuit alleges that Hampden's directors breached their fiduciary duties to Hampden's stockholders, and that the company aided and abetted those breaches, by engaging in an allegedly unfair process leading to Hampden's sale to the company and by allegedly failing to maximize value for Hampden's stockholders. The lawsuit also alleges that Hampden's proxy statement contained material omissions. The lawsuit seeks, among other things, equitable relief enjoining the sale agreement. The company believes this complaint is baseless and without merit and intends to vigorously defend this action.
