Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation (“ACFC” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GM: ACFC) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Bond Street Holdings, Inc.

Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of ACFC will receive $5.00 per share in cash for each share of ACFC they own. Of the total transaction price of $5.00, $2.00 will be held in an escrow account and will be available to cover losses from stockholder claims for one year or until the final resolution of such claims, if later.
The investigation concerns whether ACFC’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for ACFC’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Bond Street.
