Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a national securities litigation firm, has opened an investigation into the proposed merger involving Turning Point Brands, Inc. (NYSE: TPB), whereby Standard Diversified Inc. (“SDI”) will be merged into a wholly-owned subsidiary of TPB. Block & Leviton is investigating whether members of the TPB Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties in agreeing to have the Company acquire SDI, its controlling stockholder, and whether the price that TPB agreed to pay for SDI is unfairly high. TPB shareholders should contact Block & Leviton for a free case evaluation.

Under the terms of the proposed merger, SDI will be merged into a wholly-owned subsidiary of TPB in a tax-free downstream merger. The proposed merger was first announced by the two companies in November 2019, but today, the companies announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, the holders of SDI’s Class A Common Stock and SDI’s Class B Common Stock will receive in the aggregate, in return for their SDI shares, TPB Voting Common Stock at a ratio of 0.97 of a share of TPB Voting Common Stock for each share of TPB Voting Common Stock held by SDI.
