NEW YORK, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the officers or directors of Professional Holding Corp.

On August 8, 2022, Professional announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by Seacoast in an all-stock deal with an enterprise value of $488.6 million. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Professional shareholders are to receive 0.8909 shares of Seacoast common stock for each share of Professional common stock.
