Alliance Financial Investor Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP Investigate Sale to NBT Bancorp

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating the sale of Alliance Financial Corporation (“Alliance”) (Nasdaq: ALNC) to NBT Bancorp for shareholders. Under the proposed sale, Alliance shareholders will receive 2.1779 shares of NBT common stock for each share of Alliance stock owned in a deal valued at $233.4 million. Based upon the previous closing, the transaction is valued at approximately $48.00 per share.

The Alliance sale investigation centers on whether Alliance shareholders are receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the transaction undervalues Alliance stock, and whether Alliance’s board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to the deal. Shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe stated that “because Alliance shareholders will only receive NBT common stock for their shares, we believe that the transaction may undervalue Alliance stock. Our lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
