Finkelstein Thompson LLP Announces Investigation of CapitalSource, Inc. Buyout

10:51 EDT Tuesday, July 23, 2013

WASHINGTON (Business Wire) -- The law firm of Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of CapitalSource, Inc. (NYSE: CSE) (“CapitalSource” or “the Company”), concerning the Company's proposed acquisition by PacWest Bancorp. (NASDAQ: PACW) (“PacWest”). Under the terms of the merger agreement, CapitalSource shareholders will receive $2.47 in cash and 0.2837 shares of PacWest common stock for each share of CapitalSource common stock they own. The total deal is valued at approximately $2.3 billion.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration to shareholders, the process by which CapitalSource's Board of Directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interest among the Company's Board members.

If you are interested in discussing your rights as a CapitalSource shareholder, or have information relating to this investigation, please contact Finkelstein Thompson's Washington, DC offices at (202)-337-8000 or by email at
