WILMINGTON, Del., April 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:
Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon on behalf of holders of Cascade Bancorp (“Cascade”) (NASDAQ:CACB) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of Cascade by First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (“First Interstate”) announced on November 17, 2016 (the “Complaint”). The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Cascade, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and First Interstate, is captioned Parshall v. Cascade Bancorp, Case No. 6:17-cv-00405-JR (D. Or.).
If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803; by telephone at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail at email@example.com; or at: http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/.
On November 17, 2016, Cascade entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with First Interstate. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Cascade shareholders will receive 0.14864 shares of First Interstate’s Class A common stock and $1.91 in cash per share of Cascade (the “Proposed Transaction”).
Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on January 26, 2017. The Registration Statement, which recommends that Cascade stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits material information necessary to enable shareholders to make an informed decision as to how to vote on the Proposed Transaction, including material information with respect to Cascade’s financial projections, the opinions and analyses of Cascade’s financial advisor, and potential conflicts of interest. The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Cascade common stock.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 2, 2017. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
