To: All Persons or Entities who purchased Farmers Capital Bank Corporation (“Farmers Capital Bank” or the “Company”) (NASDAQGS: FFKT) stock prior to April 19, 2018.
You are hereby notified that Levi & Korsinsky, LLP has commenced an investigation into the fairness of the sale of Farmers Capital Bank to WesBanco, Inc. (NASDAQGS: WSBC) for 1.053 shares of WesBanco common stock and $5.00 cash per share. All of Farmers’ Directors and certain executive officers have already agreed to vote shares in favor of the transaction. To learn more about the action and your rights, go to:
or contact Joseph E. Levi, Esq. either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (212) 363-7500, toll-free: (877) 363-5972. There is no cost or obligation to you.
The investigation concerns whether the Board of Farmers Capital Bank breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether WesBanco is underpaying for Farmers Capital Bank shares, thus unlawfully harming Farmers Capital Bank shareholders.
