Finkelstein Thompson LLP Announces Investigation of First Financial Holdings, Inc.

WASHINGTON --(Business Wire)--

The law firm Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of First Financial Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFCH) ("First Financial" or "the Company"), concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by SCBT Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: SCBT). Under the terms of the transaction, shareholders would receive 0.4237 shares of SCBT common stock for every share of First Financial they own, a current value of approximately $18.52 per share. The deal is valued at $302.4 million in the aggregate.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration to shareholders, the process by which the Company's Board of Directors considered the transaction, as well as potential conflicts of interest among First Financial's Board members.
