NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading New York securities firm, is
investigating the Board of Directors of Wainright Bank & Trust Co. (NASDAQ: WAIN) ("Wainright" or the
"Company") for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with their attempt
to sell the Company to Eastern Bank Corporation. Under the terms of the transaction, Wainwright shareholders will
receive only $19.00 in cash for each Wainright share of common stock they own.

The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of
Directors of Wainright leading up to and approving this transaction, whether the offer price undervalues the
Company and by how much, and whether Wainright’s Board of Directors acted in the shareholders’ best interests.
The merger is expected to close in the fourth quarter 2010, and upon closing certain officers and directors of
Wainright are expected to remain with Eastern Bank. As of March 31, 2010, Wainright had assets of approximately
$1 billion.
