Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of San Diego Trust Bank ("San Diego Trust" or the "Company") (OTC QB: SDBK) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc.

Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of San Diego Trust will have a choice between electing to receive $13.41 per share in cash or 1.114x shares of Pacific Premier common stock for each share of San Diego Trust or a combination there, subject to the overall requirement that 50% of the consideration will be in the form of cash and 50% will be in the form of Pacific Premier stock. The number of shares of Pacific Premier common stock to be issued to San Diego Trust shareholders is based on a fixed exchange ratio provided that Pacific Premier's stock price remains between $10.83 and $13.24 as measure by the 10-day average closing price immediately prior to closing of the transaction. The value of the stock portion of consideration will fluctuate based on the value of Pacific Premier common stock. To the extent the average closing price of Pacific Premier common stock is outside this price range for Pacific Premier common stock, then the exchange ratio will adjust to reflect the increase or decrease of Pacific Premier common stock that is outside of this range.

The investigation concerns whether San Diego Trust's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for San Diego Trust's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Pacific Premier.

If you own the common stock of San Diego Trust and purchased your shares before March 6, 2013, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth Rigrodsky or Brian Long at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, Delaware 19803, by telephone at (302) 295-5310, or Peter Allocco at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 825 East Gate Boulevard, Suite 300, Garden City, New York 11530, by telephone at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail to info@rigrodskylong.com, or at: http://www.rigrodskylong.com/investigations/san-diego-trust-bank-sdbk.
