Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Opus Bank To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Opus Bank (“Opus” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS:OPB) of the December 27, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Opus stock or options between July 28, 2014 and October 17, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Schwartz v. Opus Bank et al, No. 2:16-cv-07991 was filed on October 26, 2016.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misrepresenting the quality of the certain loans made to the public in its financial statements in a potential violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Specifically, on October 17, 2016, the Company announced, through a press release titled “Opus Bank Announces Loan Charge-Offs Will Impact Third Quarter Earnings”, that loan charge-offs would impact its earnings for the third quarter 2016 and disclosed that it recognized charge-offs on eight loan relationships through the allowance for significant loan losses at September 30, 2016.

After the announcement, Opus’s share price fell from $34.45 per share on October 16, 2016 to a closing price of $27.20 on October 17, 2016—a $7.25 or a 21% drop.  Since then, the share price has continued to decline.  On October 26, 2016, the stock price had dropped a further $7.10 per share to close at $20.10 per share—a 26% drop.
