Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims on Behalf of Investors of Alliance Financial Corporation

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Alliance Financial Corporation (“Alliance” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ALNC) (ISIN: US0192051037) concerning the proposed acquisition of Alliance by NBT Bancorp Inc. in a stock transaction valued at approximately $233 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Alliance directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Alliance shareholders would receive 2.1779 shares of NBT common stock, valued at $48.00, per share of Alliance common stock. However, at least one analyst has set a target price of $50.00 per share.

Alliance shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Ofer Ganot at or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 315.
