Representing Investors Nationwide

According to a March 12, 2009 Reuters article a Birmingham, Alabama FINRA arbitration panel awarded $187,000 to a retired cattle farmer from York, Alabama for losses suffered in Morgan Keegan bond funds.

This is believed to be the largest arbitration award against Regions Financial Corp.’s (NYSE:RF) Morgan
Keegan division for its sale of bond funds that cost investors an estimated 2 Billion
Dollars.

The Morgan Keegan bond funds that are reportedly the subject of hundreds of
investor arbitrations include the following:

* Regions Morgan Keegan Select High Income-A, (Sym: MKHIX)
