White River Capital Inc. Receives Notice of Class Action Lawsuit

On January 17, 2013, White River Capital Inc. received notice that a putative class action lawsuit was filed on January 14, 2013 in the Superior Court of San Diego County, California against White River, each of the members of White River's board of directors, Parthenon Investors IV, L.P., Coastal Credit Holdings Inc., and Coastal Credit Merger Sub Inc. alleging, among other things, that the board of directors breached fiduciary duties in connection with the board's approval of the merger between White River and Merger Sub and issuing the proxy statement for the special meeting of shareholders to be held to consider and vote upon the Merger, and that Parthenon, Parent, and Merger Sub aided and abetted such alleged breaches of fiduciary duties. The cause of action is captioned Fundamental Partners v. Eggemeyer, et al. (Case No. 37-2013-00029777-CU-SL-CTL). The plaintiff seeks a declaratory judgment that the defendants breached, or aided and abetted in the breach of, their fiduciary duties to the plaintiff and the class members, injunctive relief preventing the consummation of the Merger, and damages as a result of the alleged actions of the defendants, including attorneys' fees and experts fees. Additionally, on January 23, 2013, the plaintiff filed with the court a motion for a temporary restraining order and expedited discovery seeking to temporarily restrain the consummation of the proposed Merger and seeking limited discovery pending a full preliminary injunction hearing. A hearing before the court on the plaintiff's motion is currently scheduled for January 31, 2013. White River strongly believes that the lawsuit is without merit and intends to vigorously defend against the pending claims, including vigorously defending against the motion for temporary restraining order.
