Banc of California, Inc. (BANC)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Banc of California, Inc. To Contact The Firm

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Banc of California, Inc. (“Banc of California” or the “Company”) (NYSE:BANC).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to properly disclose that certain Banc of California insiders had undisclosed ties to individuals accused of involvement with the collapse of Gerova Financial.

Specifically, on October 18, 2016, Seeking Alpha published a report alleging that the Company had concealed that its CEO, Jason Sugarman, was the founder, CEO, and indirect owner of a company controlled by Jason Galanis, an individual convicted of criminal securities fraud in the Gerova Financial scandal.  The article also alleged that Banc of California had used an off-balance sheet entity to make loans to insiders and that Galanis controlled COR Capital when it was a founding shareholder of Banc of California.  As result of the aforementioned allegations, the value of Banc of California stock has significantly declined.
