WeissLaw LLP Investigates First California Financial Group, Inc.

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 California Financial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: FCAL) arising from its agreement for First California to be acquired by PacWest Bancorp (NASDAQ: PACW), in a stock-for-stock deal valued at approximately $231 million based on First California's closing stock price on November 6, 2012. The proposed transaction values First California at $8.00 a share.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether First California's Board is acting to maximize shareholder value for First California's public shareholders in approving this deal and whether the Board engaged in a robust sale process in shopping the company. For the third quarter 2012, First California reported net income of $3.5 millin, compared with $2.5 million for the same quarter in 2011. Additionally, net income available to common shareholders was $3.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with $900,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the third quarter 2011.
