SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation of CIT Group Inc. (NYSE – CIT)

BALA CYNWYD – October 16, 2020 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of CIT Group Inc. (“CIT Group” or the “Company”) (NYSE – CIT) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the agreement to be acquired by First Citizens BancShares, Inc. (Nasdaq – FCNCA) (“First Citizens”). Under the terms of the agreement, CIT Group stockholders will receive only 0.0620 shares of First Citizens Class A common stock for each share of CIT Group common stock they own.
