Form 8-K for FNB CORP/FL/


23-Dec-2013

Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously announced, F.N.B. Corporation ("F.N.B.") and BCSB Bancorp, Inc. ("BCSB Bancorp") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of June 13, 2013, pursuant to which F.N.B. is to acquire BCSB Bancorp through the merger of BCSB Bancorp with and into F.N.B., with F.N.B. being the surviving corporation. F.N.B. and BCSB Bancorp recently became aware that on December 9, 2013, a purported stockholder of BCSB Bancorp filed a putative class action and derivative complaint in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Maryland, captioned Darr v. BCSB Bancorp, Inc., et al., at Case No. 03-C-13-014034, and naming as defendants BCSB Bancorp, its board of directors and F.N.B. The lawsuit makes various allegations against the defendants relating to F.N.B.'s proposed acquisition of BCSB Bancorp, including that the Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed on November 19, 2013 in connection with the proposed acquisition omits certain information allegedly necessary for BCSB Bancorp's shareholders to make an informed vote on the proposed transaction, that the director defendants breached their fiduciary duties to BCSB Bancorp in approving the proposed transaction and that F.N.B. aided and abetted those alleged breaches. The lawsuit generally seeks an injunction barring the defendants from consummating the merger transaction. Alternatively, if the companies complete the transaction before the court enters judgment, the lawsuit seeks rescission of the merger or, in the alternative, rescissory damages, an accounting for all resulting damages and for all profits and any special benefits defendants obtained as a result of the alleged breaches of fiduciary duty, and an award for the costs and expenses incurred in the lawsuit, including attorneys' fees and costs.

Earlier, on June 21, 2013, the same plaintiff had filed a similar action against the same defendants in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Case No. 24C13004131. The plaintiff voluntarily dismissed that case without prejudice before filing a second case against the same defendants alleging similar claims in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Case No. 03-C-13007839 OC. The plaintiff also voluntarily dismissed its second complaint on September 6, 2013.

F.N.B. and BCSB Bancorp believe the allegations in the recently filed complaint are without merit and intend to defend vigorously against the allegations in the complaint.
