According to the Complaint, during the Class Period, Citizens Financial made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: the Company’s employees were falsifying information related to the Citizens Checkup program; that the Company’s reported Citizens Checkup figures were exaggerated; and that as a result of the above, Citizens Financial’s statements about its business, operations and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. On March 29, 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported that certain Citizens Financial employees acknowledged that Company employees faked “financial checkup” meetings with customers. The Company stated that the “Citizens Checkup” program resulted in 400,000 scheduled appointments in 2016, but the report stated that former employees said they falsified information due to the Company's pressure to meet certain program expectations. When this news was released, the Company’s stock price dropped materially, which harmed investors according to the Complaint.
