San Diego Trust Bank Board of Directors Under Investigation by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP for Potential Breaches of Fiduciary Duty

LOS ANGELES--()--Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of San Diego Trust Bank (“SDBK” or the “Company”) (OTC Markets: SDBK) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc (“PPBI”). The transaction is valued at approximately $30.6 million. Under the terms of the deal, shareholders will have the option to receive $13.41 per share in cash, 1.114 shares of PPBI common stock for each share of SDBK, or a combination of the two – subject to the overall requirement that 50% of the consideration be in cash and 50% be in PPBI stock.

This investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors of SDBK breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the proposed transaction, and whether the Company has disclosed all material information to shareholders about the transaction. The Company has seen substantial recent growth. Its share price has skyrocketed from $11.25 on October 4, 2012 to $14.50 on February 21, 2013.
