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 Company’s and F-star’s financial projections and the analyses performed by Spring Bank’s financial advisor. The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Spring Bank common stock.
