Sep. 21, 2010 (Business Wire) -- The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, founded by a former state prosecutor and enforcement attorney for the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, and the law firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating potential legal claims against the Board of Directors of Student Loan Corporation (“Student Loan”) (NYSE: STU) related to the proposed acquisition of Student Loan by Discover Financial Services.

The acquisition agreement, which was announced on September 17, 2010, involves a transaction valued at approximately $600 million under which STU shareholders will receive $30.00 in cash for each share of Student Loan/STU common stock they hold. In a separate, but related, transaction, Student Loan will sell $28 billion in securitized federal student loans to Sallie Mae and $8.7 billion in federal and private student loans and assets to Citibank.

Student Loan’s book value has been estimated as high as $65 per share, and the company’s shares closed at over $50.00 per share in January 2010. Based on historical share values and other aspects of the proposed agreement, the investigation concerns whether the proposed share price is fair to Student Loan/STU shareholders. In addition, the investigation relates to possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of STU for approving this transaction and whether STU’s Board of Directors acted in the shareholders’ best interests.
