NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the officers or directors of Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc.

Pursuant to the merger agreement, PAC shareholders will receive $25 in cash for each share of PAC common stock owned.   The deal is scheduled to close in the second quarter of 2022.
