According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Equity Bancshares failed to maintain appropriate internal controls to assess credit risk. Due to the lack of these controls, a portion of the Company’s loans faced an increased loss risk. In fact, the Company was likely to face losses based on the inappropriate loans on its books. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Equity Bancshares, investors suffered damages.
Join the case to recover your losses.
