WILMINGTON, Del., July 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of holders of Stewart Information Services Corporation (“Stewart Information”) (NYSE:STC) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of Stewart Information by Fidelity National Financial, Inc. and its affiliates (“Fidelity”) announced on March 19, 2018 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Stewart Information, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and Fidelity, is captioned Franchi v. Stewart Information Services Corp., Case No. 1:18-cv-00951 (D. Del.).

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at info@rl-legal.com, or at http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/.

On March 18, 2018, Stewart Information entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Fidelity.  Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of Stewart Information will receive either $50.00 in cash, 1.2850 shares of Fidelity common stock, or $25.00 in cash and 0.6425 shares of Fidelity common stock (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to, among other things, Stewart Information’s financial projections, the analyses performed by Stewart Information’s financial advisor, and the background of the Proposed Transaction.  The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Stewart Information common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than September 17, 2018.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
