SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Commences an Investigation into the Proposed Sale of HCSB Financial Corp. and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm for Additional Information


The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of HCSB Financial Corp. (HCFB) (“HCSB” or the “Company”) relating to the proposed buyout of HCSB by United Community Banks, Inc.

Under the terms of the agreement, HCSB shareholders are anticipated to receive 0.0050 shares of United Community for each share of HCSB common stock held. The firm’s investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company’s Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company’s shares of common stock.

If you currently own common stock of HCSB and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, and you would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted by Brower Piven, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentinvestigations.html.
