SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces an Investigation of Opus Bank (NasdaqGS – OPB)

BALA CYNWYD, February 4, 2020 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Opus Bank (“Opus” or the “Company”)(NasdaqGS – OPB) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with proposed acquisition of the Company by Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. (“Pacific Premier”) (NASDAQ GS: PPBI). Under the terms of the agreement, Opus shareholders will receive only 0.90 shares of Pacific Premier common stock for each share of Opus common stock they hold, for an implied value of $26.82 per Opus share.

The investigation concerns whether the Opus Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process and whether Pacific Premier is underpaying for the Company. Opus shareholders will only own approximately 37% of the combined company. Moreover, the deal price represents virtually no premium over the Company’s trading price as recently as December 2019.
