Nov. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- An investor in shares of Hudson City Bancorp, Inc.  filed a lawsuit against directors of Hudson City Bancorp in effort to stop the proposed merger with M&T Bank Corporation shares at a value of approximately $7.2156 per NASDAQ-HCBK share.

Investors who purchased shares of the Hudson City Bancorp, Inc.  prior to August 27, 2012, and currently hold any of those NASDAQ-HCBK shares have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1(858) 779 - 1554.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ-HCBK investors arising out of the attempt to sell the company too cheaply via an unfair process to M&T Bank Corp.

On August 27, 2012, Hudson City Bancorp, Inc.  and M&T Bank Corporation  announced that they have entered into an agreement under which Hudson City will merge into a subsidiary of M&T Bank Corporation. Under terms of the proposed transaction, each Hudson City Bancorp, Inc share  will receive consideration valued at 0.08403 of an M&T Bank Corporation  share in the form of either M&T stock or cash, based upon the election of each Hudson City shareholder. Based on a closing price of M&T Bank Corporation  shares of $85.87 on August 24, 2012, investors in Hudson City Bancorp, Inc shares will receive a value of approximately $7.2156 per share.


However, the plaintiff claims that the offer is poorly timed and thus unfair to NASDAQ-HCBK stockholders and undervalues the company. In fact, shares of Hudson City Bancorp, Inc.  traded as recently as March 20, 2012, as high as $7.535 per share, thus above the current offer.

Those who are current investors in Hudson City Bancorp, Inc.  and purchased their Hudson City Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ-HCBK shares prior to the announcement, have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation at mail@shareholdersfoundation.com or call +1(858) 779 - 1554.
