The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Paragon Commercial Corp breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ:PBNC investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On April 27, 2017, TowneBank (NASDAQ:TOWN) and Paragon Commercial Corp, the parent company of Paragon Commercial Bank, announced the signing of a merger agreement pursuant to which TowneBank will acquire Paragon. Under the terms of the merger agreement, common shareholders of Paragon Commercial Corp (NASDAQ:PBNC) will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 1.7250 shares of TowneBank common stock for each outstanding share of Paragon Commercial Corp (NASDAQ:PBNC) common stock.
