SOUTHWEST GEORGIA FINANCIAL ALERT: Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. Investigates Sale of SGB and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm

December 19, 2019 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2019--

Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the board members of Southwest Georgia Financial Corporation (NYSE: SGB) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s proposed sale to The First Bancshares, Inc.

Click here to learn more and participate in the action.

On December 18, 2019, SGB announced that it had signed an agreement to merge with The First Bancshares. Per the merger agreement, SGB stockholders will receive 1 share of The First Bancshares common stock for each share of SGB common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the second quarter of 2020.

Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that SGB’s board of directors oversaw an unfair process and ultimately agreed to an inadequate deal price. Accordingly, the firm is investigating all relevant aspects of the deal and is committed to securing the best result possible for SGB stockholders.
