Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, investigates a possible challenge of the Board of Directors of OmniAmerican Bancorp ("OmniAmerican" or the "Company") (OABC) actions as they relate to their recommendation and agreement to merge the Company into Southside Bancshares for approximately $307 million.  The Company's stockholders are offered to receive 0.4459 shares of Southside common stock and $13.125 in cash for each share of OmniAmerican common stock they own.
