WeissLaw is investigating whether OLBK's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the merger agreement.  Notably, the per-share consideration is $8.29 less than the Company's 52-week high of $35.19

In addition, according to WesBanco's President and CEO, "[t]he merger with [OLBK] is an example of the continued solid execution on our long-term growth strategies, as it brings together two high-quality institutions with disciplined risk cultures and a strong customer focus."  Moreover, the transaction is anticipated to be 4.3% accretive to earnings in 2020 and 6.2% accretive to earnings in 2021.  

Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether the merger enhances OLBK's shareholder value.  Specifically, WeissLaw is concerned whether OLBK's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed merger, whether the proposed merger undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed merger is fully and fairly disclosed.
