Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of holders of CenterState Bank Corporation (“CenterState” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: CSFL) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of CenterState by South State Corporation (“South State”) announced on January 27, 2020 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against CenterState, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and South State, is captioned Parshall v. CenterState Bank Corporation, Case No. 1:20-cv-00398 (D. Del.).

On January 25, 2020, CenterState entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with South State.  Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of CenterState will receive 0.3001 shares of South State common stock for each share of CenterState common stock they own (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a Form S-4 Registration Statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to, among other things, the analyses performed by CenterState’s financial advisor. The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of CenterState common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 8, 2020.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
