SWS Group Board Unanimously Rejects Revised $7.50 Per Share Cash Unsolicited Conditional Proposal from Sterne Agee (SWS)

SWS Group, Inc. (NYSE: SWS), today announced that in a private letter sent on April 28, 2011, Sterne Agee revised its previous unsolicited proposal to acquire all outstanding common shares of SWS Group at a price of $7.50 per share in cash.

Consistent with its fiduciary duties and after careful and thorough review with the assistance of its financial and legal advisors, the SWS Group Board of Directors has unanimously rejected the unsolicited proposal as highly conditional and opportunistic.  Furthermore, the Board unanimously determined that the Sterne Agee proposal is speculative, illusory, subject to numerous contingencies and uncertainties, and is clearly not in the best interests of SWS Group stockholders.
