Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 12/19/2019 (Notice of voluntarily dismissal)

Filing Date: October 18, 2019

According to the Complaint, United Community is the holding company for Home Savings Bank and HSB Insurance, LLC. Home Savings Bank offers a full line of commercial, wealth management, and consumer banking products and services with thirty-three retail banking offices as well as residential mortgage loan centers.

This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on September 9, 2019, pursuant to which United Community Financial Corp. will merge with First Defiance Financial Corp.

On September 9, 2019, United Community’s Board of Directors caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger with First Defiance. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of United Community will receive 0.3715 shares of First Defiance common stock for each share of United Community they own.

On October 9, 2019, Defendants filed a Form S-4 Registration Statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Registration Statement false and misleading.

This case was voluntarily dismissed on December 19, 2019.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
