What is this Case About: Signature Bank (SBNY) Mislead Investors Regarding its Business Prospects
According to the complaint, on March 2 and 9, 2023, defendants touted the stability of its business model, diversified deposit mix, and high level of capital. These statements were false, however. On March 12, 2023, the New York Department of Financial Services ("DFS") took possession of Signature Bank and trading in the Company's shares were halted, essentially rendering the Company's shares illiquid and valueless given the bank's failure.
Defendants failed to disclose that Signature Bank did not have the strong fundamentals that it represented itself as having in the days immediately prior to its takeover, or otherwise took action that left it susceptible to a takeover by the DFS, and as a result, it became a target for regulatory action by the DFS.
