WeissLaw LLP Investigates Access National Corporation Acquisition

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2018 / WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Access National Corporation (''ANCX'' or the ''Company'') (ANCX) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Union Bankshares Corporation (''UBSH''). Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, shareholders will receive 0.75 of UBSH share for each ANCX share they own, representing per-share consideration of $26.34 based on UBSH's October 19 opening price.

WeissLaw is investigating whether ANCX's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $34.00 per ANCX share.

Moreover, the deal is a strategic transaction which UBSH anticipates will strengthen its market positioning and expand its regional footprint.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is concentrating its investigation on whether ANCX's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed acquisition, and whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company.
