NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation ("ANH" or the "Company") (NYSE:ANH) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Ready Capital Corporation ("Ready Capital") (NYSE:RC).  Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, the Company's shareholders will receive 0.1688 shares of Ready Capital and $0.61 in cash for each share of ANH common stock that they own, representing implied per-share merger consideration of approximately $2.68 based upon Ready Capital's December 8, 2020 closing price of $12.27.  Upon closing of the proposed transaction, ANH stockholders are expected to own just 24% of the combined company.
