The Law Firm of Levi and Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Investors of Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duty by the Board of M&F Worldwide Corporation in Connection With Receipt of a Merger Proposal From MacAndrew & Forbes Holdings -- MFW

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Levi & Korsinsky notifies investors in M&F Worldwide Corporation ("MFW" or the "Company") (NYSE: MFW) of claims for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law against the Company's Board of Directors 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 claims concern 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.

A complaint challenging the transaction was filed in Delaware Chancery Court. If you own common stock in MFW and wish to obtain additional information, please contact Joseph E. Levi, Esq. either via email at jlevi@zlk.com or by telephone at (212) 363-7500, toll-free: (877) 363-5972, or visit http://zlk.9nl.com/MF-Worldwide-MFW.
