NEW YORK, June 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of M&F Worldwide Corporation ("MFW" or the "Company") for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the receipt of a merger proposal from MacAndrew & Forbes Holdings, Inc. ("M&F"). Under the terms of the transaction, M&F—which currently owns 43% of MFW—would acquire the remainder of the Company for $24.00 per share in cash.

The investigation concerns whether the MFW Board of Directors is adequately shopping the Company and working to obtain the best price possible for MFW shareholders. In particular, MFW stock has traded as high as $25.90 per share as recently as April 5, 2011. Furthermore, MFW stock has a Book Value of $34.03 for the most recent quarter, thus M&F as a 43% owner may be taking advantage of other shareholders by offering an unfair price for MFW shares.
