Former Attorney General of Louisiana Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq. and the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) are investigating the proposed sale of FBR & Co. (“FBR” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FBRC) to B. Riley Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: RILY). Under the terms of the proposed transaction, shareholders of FBR will receive only 0.671 shares of B. Riley common stock and an anticipated pre-closing cash dividend of $8.50 per share (assuming sufficient funds) for each share of FBR that they own. KSF is seeking to determine whether this consideration and the process that led to it are adequate, or whether the consideration undervalues the Company.

If you believe that this transaction undervalues the Company and/or if you would like to discuss your legal rights regarding the proposed sale, you may, without obligation or cost to you, e-mail or call KSF Managing Partner Lewis S. Kahn (lewis.kahn@ksfcounsel.com) toll free at any time at 855-768-1857.
