DALLAS --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of VantageSouth Bancshares, Inc. (“VantageSouth”) (NYSE: VSB) related to the merger with Yadkin Financial Corporation for shareholders. Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, valued at approximately $299 million , VantageSouth shareholders will only receive 0.3125 shares of Yadkin Financial for each share of VSB stock owned.
