October 23, 2014 - NEW YORK, NY

Levi & Korsinsky notifies investors of Simplicity Bancorp, Inc.

(NASDAQ: HMST). A complaint was filed in California state court.

Under the terms of the transaction, Simplicity Bancorp shareholders are expected to receive one share of HomeStreet common stock for each share owned of Simplicity common stock, subject to adjustment if HomeStreet's closing stock price during a specified measurement period prior to closing is more than $20 or less than $15 per share. The claims concern whether the Board of Simplicity Bancorp breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether HomeStreet is underpaying for Simplicity Bancorp shares.
