WeissLaw LLP Investigates First M&F Corporation Acquisition

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of First M&F Corporation ("M&F" or the "Company") (NAS: FMFC) arising from its agreement for M&F to be acquired by Renasant Corporation ("Renasant"). Under the terms of the proposed transaction, M&F shareholders will receive a fixed .6425 shares of Renasant common stock for each share of M&F stock they own, representing a value of approximately $12.35 per share, based on Renasant's average ten-day closing price ended February 4, 2013.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether M&F's Board acted in the best interests of its public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize shareholder value for M&F's public shareholders, prior to entering into the proposed transaction with Renasant. M&F recently announced its results for 2012 reporting net income of $6.985 million, or $0.54 basic and diluted earnings per share, as compared to net income of $4.373 million, or $0.28 basic and diluted earnings per share, for 2011, a 93% improvement in common earnings per share.

Keenan either by telephone at (888) 593-4771 or by email at info@weisslawllp.com.
