NEW YORK, July 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the officers or directors of 1st Constitution Bancorp (NASDAQ: FCCY) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s proposed merger with Lakeland Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: LBAI).

Click here to learn more and participate in the action.

On July 12, 2021, 1st Constitution announced that it had entered into an agreement to merge with Lakeland in a transaction that values the former at approximately $244.40 million. Pursuant to the merger agreement, 1st Constitution stockholders will receive 1.3577 shares of Lakeland common stock for each share of 1st Constitution common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that 1st Constitution’s board of directors oversaw an unfair process and ultimately agreed to an inadequate merger agreement. Accordingly, the firm is investigating all relevant aspects of the deal and is committed to securing the best result possible for 1st Constitution’s stockholders.
