Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of 1st United would receive 0.89 shares of Valley common stock for each share of 1st United they own. Based on Valley’s closing stock price on May 7, 2014, 1st United shareholders would have received consideration valued at approximately $8.69 per share.
