Haeggquist & Eck, LLP Investigates Eagle Bancorp, Inc.’s Officers and Directors Regarding Related Party Transactions and Lack of Internal Controls

SAN DIEGO--()--Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a leading shareholder rights litigation firm, is investigating whether certain directors and officers of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (“Eagle Bancorp” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EGBN) breached their fiduciary duties to the Company and its shareholders. If you are an Eagle Bancorp shareholder, you are encouraged to contact Amber Eck at Haeggquist & Eck for additional information.

Eagle Bancorp is a bank headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, with operations in the Washington, D.C. area.

On July 17, 2019, Eagle Bancorp disclosed an increasing level of legal expenses resulting from ongoing internal and government investigations of Eagle Bancorp’s “identification, classification and disclosure of related party transactions; the retirement of certain former officers and directors; and the relationship of [Eagle Bancorp] and certain of its former officers and directors with a local public official.” On this news, the price of Eagle Bancorp’s shares plummeted.

Haeggquist & Eck is investigating whether members of Eagle Bancorp’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) made false and/or misleading statements or failed to disclose material adverse facts, about Eagle Bancorp’s business, operations, prospects, and financial health. Specifically, Haeggquist & Eck is investigating whether: (1) Eagle Bancorp’s internal controls, procedures, and compliance policies were inadequate; (2) Eagle Bancorp’s lack of internal controls created a foreseeable risk of heightened regulatory scrutiny and the need for Eagle Bancorp to undertake its own internal investigations; and (3) as a result, Eagle Bancorp’s statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading.
