According to a report issued by Aurelius Value, there was evidence of an insider loan scheme involving Eagle Bancorp Chairman and CEO Ronald D. Paul and other board members. The report references two undisclosed fraud suits filed by the founders of two businesses co-owned by Paul, where it is alleged that Mr. Paul used Eagle to issue large preferential loans in exchange for being personally awarded cheap equity stakes in Eagle borrowers. The article accuses Eagle of expanding into riskier Acquisition Development and Construction loans simply to fuel Mr. Paul’s own business interests rather than those of the shareholders. Following this news, shares of Eagle Bancorp fell over 24% from its previous closing price to close at $49.95 per share on December 1st, 2017.
