Square 1 Financial Inc. and PacWest Bancorp Faces Stockholder Class-Action Lawsuit to Block their Proposed Merger

Square 1 Financial Inc. and PacWest Bancorp are facing a stockholder class-action lawsuit seeking to block their proposed merger. The lawsuit filed by David Lakowitz, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated public stockholders of Square 1 - accuses Square 1's board of breaching their fiduciary duties. It also accuses Square 1 and PacWest Bancorp, for aiding and abetting such. Filed May 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina, the lawsuit claims that the merger consideration fails to adequately compensate Square 1 stockholders, noting Square 1's size, recent financial performance and expectations of continued growth. The plaintiff also noted that the merger consideration is not protected by a collar that would limit the downside risk of a fall in PacWest stock price. He also claims that the proposed merger is ‘the product of a flawed process that was designed to ensure the sale of Square 1 to PacWest on terms preferential to the defendants and other Square 1 insiders’ and which subvert the interests of public stockholders of Square 1.
