WeissLaw is investigating whether LTXB's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the merger agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $45.50 per LTXB share, or $6.18 above the per-share consideration. Additionally, Zacks Investment Research upgraded its rating of LTXB stock from "sell" to "hold" in February, while BidaskClub upgraded the Company's stock from "buy" to "strong buy" in that same month.
Moreover, the acquisition is a strategic transaction from which PB hopes to leverage LTXB's 60 years of service in the North Texas region to expand and strengthen its foothold in the rapidly growing Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area. Finally, the Company recently reported a $235.7 million quarterly increase in total deposits for Q1 2019.
WeissLaw is investigating whether LTXB's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed merger, whether the proposed merger undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed merger is fully and fairly disclosed.
