BALA CYNWYD, PA / ACCESSWIRE / April 19, 2021 / Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of American River Bankshares (“AMRB” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:AMRB) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the agreement to be acquired by Bank of Marin Bancorp (“BMRC”) (BMRC). Under the terms of the agreement, AMRB shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.575 shares of BMRC common stock for each share of AMRB common stock they own. Based on BMRC’s closing stock price of $39.06 on April 16, 2021, the transaction is valued at $134.5 million, or $22.46 per share of AMRB common stock.
The investigation concerns whether the AMRB Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process and whether BMRC is paying too little for the Company.
