NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Notice is hereby given that Monteverde & Associates PC has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Case No. 1:18-cv-02496-RDB, on behalf of shareholders of First Connecticut Bancorp, Inc. ("First Connecticut" or the "Company") (FBNK) who held First Connecticut shares and have been harmed by First Connecticut and its board of directors' (the "Board") for alleged violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") in connection with the acquisition of the Company by People's United Financial, Inc. ("People's United") (PBCT) ( the "Proposed Transaction").
Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated June 18, 2018, each share of First Connecticut common stock issued and outstanding will be converted into the right to receive 1.725 shares of People's United common stock (the "Merger Consideration"). The complaint questions the fairness of the Merger Consideration offered to the Company's shareholders and alleges that the proxy statement regarding the Proposed Transaction (the "Proxy") fails to disclose material information that is necessary for shareholders to properly assess the fairness of the Proposed Transaction, thereby rendering certain statements in the Proxy incomplete and misleading.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from today. Any member of the putative 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.
