About the Lawsuit

Banc of California and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On October 18, 2016, SeekingAlpha published an article alleging that the Company’s senior officers and board members have ties to Jason Galanis, who purportedly has a “long history of secretly gaining control of banks and public companies via front men, looting assets, and leaving unsuspecting investors and taxpayers with hundreds of millions in losses.”

Then, on January 23, 2017, the Company disclosed the resignation of its CEO and the opening of an SEC investigation into the Company.

On this news, the price of the Company’s shares plummeted.
