FIRST INTERSTATE BANCSYSTEM ALERT: Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. Investigates Merger of FIBK and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm

January 3, 2022 GMT

NEW YORK, Jan. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the officers or directors of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIBK) (“FIBK”) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s merger with Great Western Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: GWB) (“GWB”).

On September 16, 2021, FIBK announced that it had entered into an agreement to merge with GWB in a deal valued at approximately $2 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, GWB stockholders will receive 0.8425 shares of FIBK common stock for each share of GWB common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the first quarter of 2022.
