Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Bridge Capital Holdings (NASDAQ GS: BBNK) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Bridge Capital Holdings (“Bridge Capital” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: BBNK) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Western Alliance Bancorporation (“Western Alliance”) (NYSE: WAL), in a transaction valued at approximately $425 million.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Bridge Capital will receive 0.8145 of a share of Western Alliance and $2.39 in cash for each share of Bridge Capital common stock owned.  Based of Western Alliance’s closing price on March 9, 2015, Bridge Capital shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $26.32 per share.

The investigation concerns whether Bridge Capital’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Bridge Capital’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Western Alliance.
