WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of First West Virginia Bancorp, Inc. (“FWVB” or the “Company”) (OTC: FWVB) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by CB Financial Services, Inc. (“CBFV”) (NASDAQ: CBFV). Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, the Company’s shareholders can elect to receive $28.50 in cash or 0.9583 of a share of CBFV for each FWVB.
WeissLaw is investigating whether FWVB’s Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement. Notably, in its most recent financial release, the Company reported total assets increased $7.9 million, or 2.3%, to $343.1 million in the nine-month period ended September 30, 2017.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether FWVB’s shareholders will obtain their fair and proportionate share of the Company’s continued success and future growth prospects.
