NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Pulaski Financial Corp. ("Pulaski" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: PULB) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to First Busey Corporation for approximately $211 million

The Company's stockholders will only receive 0.79 shares of common stock of First Busey for each share of Company common stock, or $17.24 per share. However, the offer provides virtually zero premium and Pulaski stock traded at $17.25, above the merger consideration, on December 2, 2015.

The investigation focuses on whether Company's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company's stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of Company's shareholders.
