1st United Bancorp Shareholder Alert: Former SEC Attorney Willie Briscoe and Powers Taylor LLP Investigate Proposed Sale to Valley National Bancorp

DALLAS --(Business Wire)--

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of 1st United Bancorp ("1st United") (NasdaqGS: FUBC) related to the proposed sale to Valley National Bancorp for shareholders. Under the terms of the transaction, valued at approximately $312 million, 1st United shareholders will only receive 0.89 of a share of Valley National Bancorp for each 1s United share owned. However, this consideration is dependent on Valley National Bancorp's average stock price staying between $8.09 and $12.13 prior to closing.

The 1st United investigation centers on whether 1st United's Board of Directors is acting in the shareholders' best interests, whether the board is properly considering the proposed price for the shareholders, and whether the board has employed an adequate process to review and act on the proposed transaction.
